Lichen Identification Field Trip with Sierra Club

lichen Morguefile

Lichens are an important part of the biosphere that can grow almost anywhere, from inside the surface layer of rocks in Antarctica to the leaves of trees in the Amazon Forest.  They are not one species, but two or three different species living in close association (symbiosis) with each other, all from different life kingdoms.  To learn more about lichens join Sierra Club and walk leader David Ledger for a two mile lichen field trip on Saturday, November 28 at Whiskeytown National Recreation Area.  You will learn about the basics of lichen biology and identification.  For this free event meet at the Holiday Market parking lot (far end by CVS) at Placer and Buenaventura at 9 am to carpool/caravan to the trailhead or at the Camden House parking lot at Whiskeytown at 9:30 am.  For more information call 530-355-8542.
