Non-vascular plants such as mosses, lichens, and liverworts are drawing increasing attention for their importance as indicators of forest health, air quality and environmental integrity. Join us in investigating hundreds of non-vascular species, many of which are only found in the ancient forests of the Pacific Northwest. This course is especially helpful for agency personnel conducting forest health surveys throughout the state.
Instructor John Villella is a professional ecologist, member of the Northwest Lichenologist Society, and former Opal Creek staff instructor.
