Lichens can be found in almost every terrestrial habitat on Earth and while many of us may feel confident that we know a lichen when we see it, we may struggle to describe exactly what they are. Surprisingly complex for their size, lichens are important to wildlife and contribute to nutrient and water cycling. Lichens can also be used as environmental indicators.
Join us at Cedar Creek Ecosystem Science Reserve as we dive into the basics of lichens, their role in the ecosystem, and how you can be a part of scientific research in Minnesota. The workshop will include both indoor (seated)) and outdoor (walking) activities.
Location address: Cedar Creek, 2660 Fawn Lake Drive NE, East Bethel, MN 55005
Presenters will include University researchers, iNaturalist power users, and Minnesota Master Naturalist volunteers.
