Growing on bark, logs, soil, and rocks, lichens are more easily spotted and studied when leafy plants are dormant, which makes winter a great time to study them. Explore the variety of lichens at the sanctuary and practice field identification of common lichen types. Bring a hand lens (at least 10x), if you have one, or borrow one of ours. A notepad and close-focusing digital camera or smart phone are also useful.
