Wenatchee Valley Chapter WNPS

Leader: Don Schaechtel

Winter is a great time to look at lichens because many have fallen out the trees and are easy to find on the snow. That gives us a great excuse to put on snowshoes and seek them out. We'll begin with an easy snowshoe romp in Leavenworth to collect specimens, then we'll return to Don's house for refreshments and a discussion about what we found. We will also have time to look at the lichens under the microscope to see reproductive features and other structures. Expect to find at least ten species and learn how to identify them.
