Backyard Forestry in 90 Minutes at the Forest Resource Education Center continues every 2nd Thursday of the month!  Join us this Thursday, August 8th as we welcome Natalie Howe, who will give a talk covering lichen biology and ecology, how forest management influences lichen communities, and why we should care about having lichen-rich trees and forests.

She hopes that listeners will leave with more appreciation of the miniature worlds that lichens construct in the forests and neighborhoods of New Jersey on bark, rock, soils and sometimes, benches.
Lichen specimens will be provided for observation, and there will be time for questions.
