Learning from Lichens: What Plants Can Tell Us About Air Quality

December 17, 2020 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Learning from Lichens: What Plants Can Tell Us About Air Quality

Learning from Lichens: What can lichens tell us about air quality? Part plant, part fungus, lichens can live in the most extreme environments — yet can be sensitive to air pollution. Join us as we explore the connections between lichens, air pollution, and acid rain. You’ll learn how to identify the basic forms of lichen and how their presence — or absence — can tell us about the health of our environment.
This Facebook Live presentation will broadcast on December 17 at 3:00. It will be recorded for later viewing. This presentation is by Roberta Burnes, the Environmental Education Specialist for the Kentucky Division for Air Quality.
