Lichens, Mosses, and Ferns: Unsung Heroes of the North Woods

Course Overview

Often overlooked and clearly underappreciated, our lichens, mosses, and ferns are wonderfully diverse and surprisingly beautiful. We will explore habitats from the shore of Lake Superior to inland forests and rocky outcrops. Practice with tools and techniques that will catapult you from nerdy novice to local respected authority (you'll amaze friends and family). Bring a camera, notebook, and curiosity. Casual strolls through the park will never be the same again.
