Talk – Lichens

Lunan Hall - St. Paul's United Church 349 Waverley Street, Thunder Bay

Red, orange, yellow-green, and mineral grey. Leafy, powdery, shrubby, and crusty. Lichens are both eye-catching and astoundingly diverse. This talk aims to break down lichen biology and identification for those without micro-scopes and laboratories. The region boasts and incredible diversity of unique lichens, and we will cover which boreal, temperate, tropical, and arctic-alpine species you might get a chance to see while out exploring.
*Cyanobacteria (blue-green algae) – Nathan Wilson will give an update on the status and recognition of cyanobacteria (blue-green algae) and how to report suspected sightings of it in Thunder Bay District.
