These mysterious organisms have fascinated people for years. Not a plant, not a fungus, Lichens are a surprisingly elegant combination of the two. You'll spend the weekend delving into their enchanting world as you learn their basic ecology, identification, and natural history. This field-based workshop lasts from Friday supper to Sunday lunch. Fee includes all instruction, materials, meals, and lodging.
Cost: $268. Thanks to funding from the North Carolina Department of Transportation, this workshop is available for a $50 non-refundable registration fee to the first 10 formal or non-formal educators who sign up for the workshop. Space is limited to a total of 20, so register early!
