I Lichen You A Lot: Family Tour & Crafting

February 11th , 2:00pm 3:30pm

There’s no greater love than when a fungus and an algae come together to form a lichen. They literally can’t live without each other! While much of nature lies dormant in winter, lichens thrive and though they are easy to spot, they’re often overlooked. This afternoon of exploration for families will include a walking tour followed by Valentine’s Day card crafting in the Historic Chapel using lichens (and as many lichen puns as we can think of!). We think you’ll be lichen this event a lot!

Price: $15, $10 for members, $5 for kids ages 4-12
