Learn about the Lichens of the Shawangunk Mountains at Minnewaska

Sunday, October 23, 2022 09:30 AM - 12:00 PM

Join lichen photographer and Department of Environmental Conservation Steward, John Franklin, for a walk and talk on lichens, those amazing little organisms that we see growing on trees and rocks throughout the Park Preserve. We will walk up to two miles on carriage roads, stopping to discuss lichens along the way. This program is recommended for adults and children over the age of 12. Children must be accompanied by a parent or guardian over the age of 18. Please bring binoculars, a hand loupe, or a magnifying glass, if possible, to aid you in close-up observations of the lichens. Meet at the Lake Minnewaska Visitor Center. Pre-registration is required by calling the Lake Minnewaska Visitor Center at 845-255-0752.
