You've seen them growing on trees, rocks, and even buildings. They're all over the Pacific Northwest from the coast to the mountains. But just what are lichens anyway? More info...

How do they manage to grow in such diverse settings, even under difficult environmental conditions? Join Master Naturalist Rebecca Lexa to learn about the biology of these amazing beings, discuss some factors for basic lichen identification, and go for a walk to see what lichens we might find.

This class will be held in the Portland metro area. An exact meeting location and further details will be emailed to participants the Monday prior to the workshop date. Unfortunately, WildCraft cannot facilitate transportation or carpooling to and from classes.
