Lichens & Ferns Workshop
August 12, 2017
9:00 am - 4:00 pm
This all day workshop, held in partnership with our friends at the Friends of Sax Zim Bog, will include spending the day up at the Sax Zim bog, looking for some of the most often ignored organisms… lichens and ferns.
Spend the day learning about the lives of these fascinating groups. You’ll be in the field, learning identification tips and tricks, and we’ll find a wide variety of species, in a number of locations.
We’ll also bring specimens back to the Welcome Center to examine them under a microscope. Joe’s books will be available for purchase!
Instruction, and a fun day out in the Sax Zim Bog!
No prior experience needed
