Winter Talk: Learn About Lichen with Tom Walker

Date: January 15, 2022

Join Lichen expert Tom Walker to discover the world of local lichens. Lichens are symbiotic organisms formed from the union of fungi and algae. They stabilize and add nutrients to our soils, provide shelter for invertebrates, promote soil formation on bare rocks, and so much more.

While they may be found all over the globe and in the harshest of conditions, they thrive in areas with clean air, high humidity, ample sunlight, and moderate temperatures. The constant sea breezes surrounding Cape Cod make it the ideal place for diverse lichen communities.

After you register for this free online presentation, you will receive an Eventbrite registration confirmation email and an email with the Zoom link.
