Moss Workshop and Walk

The announcement is up for my next moss walk this summer through the Connecticut Botanical Society. The details are listed below or you can check out the information here on their website.

 Moss Workshop and Walk - July 24, 2010 (Saturday 1:00 to 4:00 p.m.)
Hiding beneath your feet are an array of bright green plants, just waiting to be discovered. Come explore the trails and lake-shore of the James L. Goodwin State Forest in Hampton, Connecticut with Jessica Budke, a PhD student studying mosses at the University of Connecticut. After a brief indoor introduction we will head outside to identify and experience a diversity of mosses that are common in Connecticut forests. Participants should wear sturdy shoes and dress for the weather. 

(Update  2 July 2010 - The Workshop is currently full. If you would like to be placed on the wait list feel free to contact me.)  

Registration:This workshop is open to the public and is limited to 14 people. Call or email Jessica Budke ( to register - (860) 486-6306. Directions will be sent to registrants.
