Nature Walk 6/10/21

I spent time at my local environmental center walking through trails. It was a hot dry day which was unfortunate as I was unable to find any fungi. It makes sense since fungi prefer moist dark conditions. However, I came across a lot of lichens in the woods all over various types of trees such as oaks. When I first started the walk I didn't initially recognize or pay attention to these lichens but by the end of it, I naturally recognized all the lichens on the trunks of the trees. On one of the trees, there was a sign in front that explained what lichens were and how they grow on healthy and unhealthy trees. I found this really cool as I feel many people see lichens on trees and have no idea what they are looking at. I also saw an abundance of moss on rocks and all over the forest environment. I really enjoyed this time outside since I learned to recognize things in nature that I had been oblivious to all these years.
