Lichens are commonly seen yet poorly understood, beautiful yet bewildering love stories between two (or more) entirely different living things. These tiny creatures can be found year-round, and are far more complex, vital, and tough than meets the eye. On this guided walk, we will explore the bizarre, delightful micro-world of lichen interactions and the places they grow through use of hand-lenses and microscopes. Join us as we learn to listen to the silent little love stories happening all around the Woods!
More details: Please dress for the weather, be prepared for a moderate hike with some hills, and bring a hand-lens if you already have one. Snowshoes will be available if necessary. Pre-registration is required and due to limited capacities associated with the pandemic, walk-ins cannot be accommodated. At Baltimore Woods Nature Center, the health and safety of our staff and visitors is of utmost importance. All in-person programming will follow best practices for keeping our participants safe, including physical distancing and wearing facial coverings.
