Zooming in on Nature: Lichens Demystified

September 23, 2021 , 6:00pm 7:00pm

What are these organisms brightening up the landscape in shades of orange, yellow, green, blue, and even black? No, it’s not the flowers, it’s the lichens! Green-Wood is the ideal ecological oasis for lichens—colorful fungi that grow on gravestones and trees.

Nova Patch, a member of the New York Mycological Society, will present on lichens: what they are and why they matter, with a focus on lichens found in the Cemetery, which is home to over fifty species. The next time you visit Green-Wood you won’t be able to take your eyes off them!

$5 / free for members. A Zoom link and recipe will be emailed the day before the program.
