Lichens: part algae, part fungi, all mystery! Lichens are some of the hardiest organisms on Earth and they can be found all around us. Lichens have a reputation for being hard to identify, but with some practice beginners can learn to identify lots of the common species. In this program Executive Director Bert Harris will teach us the basics of lichen biology and then lead us on a walk around the field station to see how many types of lichens we can find. No experience with lichens necessary.
