Winter is a perfect time to focus on the tiny greenish things in the world—mosses and their relatives, and lichens. These small organisms capture our attention and invite us to take a closer look.
Vermont Land Trust will hold a Mosses & Lichens: A Winter Wonderland webinar on February 16th from Noon to 1 pm EST.
In this webinar, Ecologist Liz Thompson will dive into how mosses, liverworts, and hornworts are put together. She will explain learn how they reproduce and explain how to identify a few of the most common species.
The webinar will also examine lichens, and learn how they’re made up of fungi and algae (and sometimes other things) growing together in a mutual relationship. We will look into how lichens reproduce, what they tell us about their habitats, and we’ll learn to recognize a few notable species.
