Start Date: 9/12/2021Start Time: 2:00 PM
This event recurs on a custom schedule.   Click here to see the series dates.
Event Description:
Around this time of year half a fairy circle of fungi ['shroom variety] shows up below the Deam Lake SRA entrance sign & another half across the road in the cemetery.   A short hike on our Nature Center Trail is also a good place to observe various forms of fungi and lichens, especially if there have been ample rains. Naturalist Sherrie shares her collection : Fotos of Fabulous Fungi  - all photographed within the state of Indiana. These will be showing on the monitors all day except for program times 11am and 2pm when we'll be doing a program: "Taking a Likin' to Lichens" We'll start with a short approximately 7 minute program indoors to learn what Lichens are and the 4 forms they take, how long they live and why they are important.  Then it's outside for a short walk around the Forest Education Center to see 3 of the 4 forms of Lichens that we have right here.
