LICHENS…these mysterious organisms have fascinated people for years. Their life history and diversity is fascinating, and they serve as habitat for other bizarre creatures—the tardigrades, or water bears!
Spend the weekend delving into the enchanting world of lichens as we learn their basic ecology, identification, and natural history during this field-based course. The program lasts from Friday supper to Sunday lunch.
