Explore Majestic Old Forests in Vermont

Old forests are so much more than old trees, majestic as those are. Old forests are mossy ground, down and standing dead wood with animal cavities, and mushrooms in abundance.

This richly illustrated talk will explore elements—other than trees—that we can see in old forests in the winter. It’s a great time to see mosses, lichens, and fungi. It’s also a great time to see animal tracks, tree cavities, and mystery nests.

This talk is the first in a series of three online events and three summer in-person events related to old forests.
