Meet at private residence and after short lesson, walk to trail head.

I am not an expert on mosses and lichens but like to study them and will have tools and guides to facilitate your learning about them.  I am hoping others will have some knowledge to share as well.  This is for beginners and intermediates interested in learning about what is around them in the forest and for advanced botanists willing to share!

Required Equipment

Required Equipment

Modified ten essentials.  You will want a pack for water, snacks, guide books, and gloves/rain gear/spare clothing.

We will be close to home so no big risks. 

Guide books, scopes, and close up camera lenses would be fun.

I will provide a snack and also collection bags.

We will cancel if pouring rain but not in a drizzle.

Wear masks or course!
