12/10/22 Looking for Lichens w/Tom Walker - Great Neck

Join us on Saturday, December 10th at the Great Neck Wildlife Sanctuary for a Lichen walk with Tom Walker.   

Did you realize the oldest organism on earth was a lichen? There are close to 20,000 species on this planet, and all are formed from the union of a fungus and an alga living "symbiotically." Birds use them to line their nests, they slowly break rock down into soil, they stabilize bare soils, and many other things. Intolerant of pollution, they also act as a bioindicator of air quality. Lucky for us, they are abundant along our projecting coastlines where there is lots of clean, humid, ocean air. Join naturalist Tom Walker as we explore these fascinating, yet understudied treasures of our natural world. Dress for the weather, wear sturdy walking shoes and bring a hand lens if you have one.

Where: Great Neck Wildlife Sanctuary, Stockton Shortcut and Great Neck Road, Wareham

When: Saturday, December 10th at 11am
