In this class, participants will learn about lichens, fascinating symbiotic species coming from the relationship between fungi and algae. Learn what they are, how they grow, where they do and don’t grow, and what makes them the most enthralling organisms in the world. We’ll practice lichen identification using local keys. We’ll also practice documenting of our finds iNaturalist and collecting herbarium specimens. We’ll go on field trips to explore some of the interesting aspects of lichen biology and ecology. Registration closes February 10. REGISTER.
