10am - 3:30pm

Broad Meadow Brook Conservation Center & Wildlife Sanctuary

Lichens are everywhere - those grayish, greenish, occasionally orange splotches on tree limbs, boulders, and stone walls that brighten in wet weather. These symbiotic colonies of fungus and algae are pioneer organisms, growing in the most extreme conditions. Learn to recognize some of the most common of the 1,200 species found in New England. This program includes classroom study and outdoor observation. Storm date March 29.
