Rare Lichen Tour
Leader: Dr. Troy McMullin
Meet: March Rd. at Upper Dwyer Hill Rd., on the SW corner where there is a parking lot. We will carpool a short distance from there.
Many of you will remember Troy as a recent speaker on lichens at one of our monthly meetings. On our rare lichen tour he will lead us through the alvar at Burnt Lands Provincial Park, where we will see many uncommon lichens that are alvar specialists, including a large population of the rare Thyrea confusa. We will walk approximately 2 km on easy trails. Please bring appropriate footwear. The alvar is exposed so bring sun protection and water. Bring a lunch, a hand lens if you have one (There will be a few extra to share.) and bring rain and bug gear. Register at email@example.com
