Lichen Snowshoe Romp, Leavenworth, WA

17 Feb 2024 1:00 PM | Tiffany Theden

Winter is a great time to look at lichens because many have fallen  from 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 to look at 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.  Limit: 8.  To sign up and get full details contact Don Schaechtel at don.schaechtel@gmail.com.


There is still time to sign up with 4 spaces available for the annual Lichen Snowshoe Romp on Saturday February 17, 2024.   Don Schaechtel is hosting this annual event in Leavenworth from 1 - 4 PM.
