Join Shelly Benson, President of the California Lichen Society, for an introduction to the fascinating world of lichens. We’ll learn to identify the different lichen growth forms and structures, and admire the incredible diversity of our local lichen flora. Remember to bring your hand lens so you can truly appreciate the fine details. This walk is for ages 15 and up. We request that no pets (except service animals) attend. High fire danger cancels: Call (415) 893-9527 after 8am on the morning of the event to hear a recorded message if cancelled.
