Introduction to Lichen Identification (Adult Naturalist Program)
Friday, February 9 @ 10:30 AM - 2:00 PM$20 - $25
Join lichenologist Mary Bartkowiak of the UWSP Freckmann Herbarium, for a hands-on workshop on lichen biology and identification. We’ll start in the Cable Natural History Museum at 10:30 a.m. for a slide presentation, and then head outside to look for lichens. Back at the Museum, we’ll take a closer look at specimens using hand lenses and our new digital microscopes. You’ll discover a whole new world filled with what seems like alien life-forms, stunning colors, and fascinating relationships. We’ll wrap up by 2:00 p.m. Bring a sack lunch. Register at cablemuseum.org by February 6. $20 member/$25 non-member. Call 715-798-3890 for more info.
