    Cemetery Lichens - Mount Pleasant Cemetery, Seattle


    ​Why not consider lichens as an alternative for Hallowe'en?  Lichens are friendly and interesting organisms that love to grow on headstones and old trees. They are harmless to your plants and add aesthetic value to trees and shrubs.  We can actually use them as indicators of air pollution!

    Katherine Glew is offering a 2 hour lichen experience at the Mount Pleasant Cemetery in Seattle, on Saturday, October 27 from 10:00am to noon. This offering will occur - rain, shine, wind, snow.........

    TBA

    Terri Lee Knoke, 67, passed away on April 16, 2020, at her home in Burbank, Washington from complications due to metastatic breast cancer. She was an avid enthusiast of lichens. Terri was a member of Northwest Lichenologists, Northwest Scientific Association, and the Washington Native Plant Society (WNPS).

    Terri was a chemical engineer and moved to Burbank to work for the Boise-Cascade Paper Company. She was also an accomplished artist in botanical illustration.

    Most recently Terri, along with Jenny Jenny Von Reisand Mickie Chamness, coordinated the Badger Mountain lichen inventory in Richland, WA September, 2018.

    Terri went to many Northwest Scientific Association meetings to connect with Northwest Lichenologists, attending the paper sessions and participating in field collecting.

    Terri was an enthusiastic botanist, contributing her time to many WNPS eastern Washington activities. 

    One of her last requests was to donate a medical microscope to a deserving and developing lichen student. Her microscope was given to Heather Ahn Stewart, a student of Lalita Calabria at Evergreen University in Olympia.

    Terri will be missed by all of us in Northwest Lichenologists.

    Andrienne Kovasi and I will be leading the annual lichen walk at Mt. Pisgah Arboretum Jan 18, 2020, 10:00-12:00. Meet at the Visitors Center below the parking lots. We will mosey along through riparian oaks then climb slowly through a Doug-fir forest, then along the edge of the oak savannah, ending up at the silo to look at the amazing Chaenotheca population there. The walk happens in rain or shine.
