LICHENS AT JOPPENBERGH MOUNTAIN
October 27 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
So what are lichens, anyway? Explore some lichens and lichen habitats on Joppenbergh Mountain with Lynn Bowdery (email@example.com ). Lynn has been trying to learn how to identify some of the lichens common in our region. She will try to share what she has learned about these intriguing creatures found on soil, rocks and trees. We might go off the paths depending on what we want to look at. Wear suitable shoes, and bring a strong magnifier or loupe if you have one. Some can be provided. Meet at the parking area for Willow Kiln Park, behind the Rosendale Theater, reached via Hardenburg Lane, off of Route 213 (Main Street, Rosendale). Rain cancels.
The field trips of JBNHS are oriented to nature study. They are free and open to the public. We do, however, sometimes visit sites that charge admission fees, which are the responsibility of the participants. Children are very welcome on field trips, but pets are not. Although there is a brief courtesy waiting period for latecomers, the meeting times are important: please arrive in time to sign up with the leader.
