Did you know that as we hike through a forest, we may see lichens and fungi on the side of trees or on fallen logs even in winter?  Together we will read a story about a very famous writer who was fascinated by fungi and lichens, called “Beatrix Potter, Scientist” Written by Lindsay H. Metcalf and Illustrated by Junyi Wu.  We will have a chance to look at lichens and fungi under a microscope, make a craft, and we will provide a scavenger hunt to take on trails to help you to explore.
