Learn about local Lichens from expert Joe Walewski of Wolf Ridge Environmental Learning Center. Lichens are all around us, but it takes effort to notice them! Once you begin to see them, you’ll start seeking them out everywhere you go. Joe will share images and stories of discovering lichens in the St. Croix and Namekagon Riverway and tips for identifying lichens anywhere else you might explore. Together, we will learn the basics of lichen biology, ecology, and observation.
Joe Walewski, Wolf Ridge Naturalist and Interim Program Director, has been a Naturalist all his life and could never imagine doing anything else. In addition to managing the Wolf Ridge Graduate Naturalist Training Program since 1999, he authored Ferns & Allies of the North Woods and Lichens of the North Woods.
In advance of our Lichens of the Riverway presentation, we would love to see what lichens you are finding in the watershed! Send in your photos of lichens you find while out exploring. Describe where you found them, and send them to Wendy Tremblay ( email@example.com ) by Monday, January 24th. Three lucky lichen photographers will go home with a copy of Lichens of the North Woods.
