Tuesday, February 13 from 6:30 to 8 pm ET
Presenter: Ian Adams
Join us virtually on the evening of February 13 as we welcome back Ian Adams for his program The World of Lichens. Lichens are fascinating organisms that attach themselves to tree bark, rocks, and soil and cover 6-8% of the Earth’s land surface, yet they are unknown to most people. They are a combination of a fungus and an alga, and more than 700 kinds of lichens have been found in Ohio. This program is a guided tour of the world of lichens: what they are, where to find them, how they live and reproduce, tips for identifying lichens, and their use as animal food, as indicators of air quality, as a source for clothing dyes, and their importance in soil formation and enrichment.
