The Reindeer Are Hungry: An Exploratory Walk & Talk on Reindeer Moss

December 17, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

Come learn about reindeer moss!  A brief presentation will introduce this lichen and all of its magical powers.  Learn how it grows, where to find it, and what species we’re most likely to find at Goodwin.  Then we’ll take a short walk around the Discovery Loop Trail and map out our findings.  We may even find a few more interesting things along the way. The walk will end with an opportunity to take home your very own reindeer moss ornament.

Regan Stacey is a participant in the Master Naturalist Program. She is a practicing artist who holds a B.S. in biology, an M.F.A. in visual studies, and is a self-proclaimed forest whisperer.  A lover of the mesic forest – she embraces rock, lichen, moss, ferns, trees and the light that moves through it.  When not in the forest, you can find her in the studio making art or in the kitchen dusting off her pastry chef hat.

Fun for all ages.
