  • BHHT Satisfy Your Curiosity: Common Mosses and Liverworts!


    November 1, 2019  3:00 pm - 4:30 pm
    Blue Hill Heritage Trust, 157 Hinckley Ridge Rd, Blue Hill, ME 04614, USA

    Miniature plants abound, but we often overlook them. They play key roles in the ecosystem, and have exquisite beauty. On Friday Nov 1, 3pm Blue Hill Heritage Trust will host a short nature walk followed by an indoor workshop led by Alison C. Dibble, Ph.D. We will explore moss habitats in the forest right here behind our BHHT office and talk about how to look at mosses and liverworts. Wear warm clothing and bring a hand lens if you have one! Children, with their parent or guardian, are welcome. Space is limited so please register in advance, call 374-5118 or email info@bluehillheritagetrust.org. If extreme weather, please call ahead, but in light rain the nature walk will be held. We will use a recently published book by Ralph Pope, "Mosses, Liverworts and Hornworts" (available in book stores or online). Dr. Alison Dibble is an ecologist of Brooklin, Maine with more than 35 peer review publications in conservation biology-related fields. She has admired mosses and liverworts for more than 33 years and pursues the study of these plants with enthusiasm. She has taught numerous beginner-level courses and workshops on mosses and liverworts and takes pleasure in helping newcomers get started in a big adventure.
