At our feet, yet often unnoticed, is 3-4 inch ecological bridge between the soil and above-the-ground life. Join Master Naturalist Marty Skinner for an enlightening look at mosses and lichens, critical components of this boundary layer. In a brief lecture & slide show, Marty will describe its nature and function. You’ll then head out into the garden to locate and identify several common species, and then come back indoors for a closer examination of a few specimens. Your eyes will open to a rich and fascinating part of the natural world.
