Portland, we’ve really taken a lichen to you. That’s why we’re coming to the World Forestry Center for a day full of those fuzzy growths on trees, roofs and gravestones: lichens! Join Science Friday and the World Forestry Center as we highlight these special symbiotic organisms. Meet experts in the forests, see select specimens from near and far, and maybe even discover your favorite lichen that you didn’t know existed.
This event will feature an on-stage presentation and interactive stations. Come early to stop by all the tables!
Included with your event ticket is free admission to the World Forestry Center Discovery Museum from 10:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. the day of the event.
Event attendees will have the opportunity to sign up for a post-event nature walk through the Hoyt Arboretum with one of their knowledgeable volunteers. Tours run about 90 minutes and explore a variety of themes.
This event is a co-production with the World Forestry Center.
