Looking for a fungus related activity for those early spring days in Seattle?

Why not consider lichens as an alternative? They grow on headstones and trees in cemeteries and can tell us about the air quality and the make-up of gravestones.  Cemeteries can take on new meaning as a *fun* place to observe a symbiotic organism made up of a fungus and algae.  You will also learn about common lichens found in an urban environment and take home a user-friendly chart that lists lichens found in your neighborhood.

Always wondered about what lichens are and why they are found on your trees, and Rhododendrons? Lichens are harmless to your plants and add aesthetic value to trees and shrubs. We can actually use them as indicators of air pollution!  

Join Dr. Katherine Glew on Saturday, April 4, 2020 at a local cemetery in Seattle to learn about lichens.  You can enjoy the spring season by looking for lichens locally, rather than driving out of the city for an outdoor adventure.  This class is normally offered for $30 per person to the public, but PSMS is able to offer the class for $20 per person.  This class size is limited to 16, and there are no drop ins. 


Location: A local Seattle cemetery
