About the event

Join Naturalist Educator Stephen Bucklin on a walk in Allegheny Commons to learn about lichens. These incredible symbiotic organisms (part fungus, part algae, put simply) are an often overlooked and important part of our ecosystem. This guided walk will give you hands-on experience observing lichens in their habitat and learning about their growth forms, structures, and ecology. Hand lenses are recommended for appreciating the tiny details of lichens, and will be available for borrowing. Walk will meet at the trailhead at the northwestern corner of Allegheny Commons near Lake Elizabeth.
