Trip is limited to 12 participants - Signups will be taken for 24 hours. Participants will be randomly selected. The remainder will be put on standby status in case of cancellations. Only registered people may attend.

Description: Join lichen enthusiast Michael Mulroy for an exploration of the unique maritime lichen flora of Morro Bay at White Point. During the walk, we will learn about the charismatic fog lichens, discuss the important ecological roles of lichens in coastal habitats, and learn to identify several common and perhaps one or two locally rare lichen species.
