    The Cape Cod Museum of Natural History in Brewster presents Lichen Walk & Talk with Cape Cod Naturalist Tom Walker Saturday, June 10, 2023 at 10:30am.

    Lichens are a unique pairing of fungi and algae found everywhere around us. Naturalist Tom Walker has been studying Cape Cod lichens carefully over the past few years and will share information about the life history of lichens, how to distinguish common species from each other, and how they fit into the larger ecosystem. As a Cape Cod Naturalist, he has developed considerable skills identifying birds, trees, shrubs, wildflowers, ferns, lichens, fungi, and to a lesser degree, mosses, and liverworts.

    Tom is a graduate of the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, with a degree in Wildlife and Fisheries biology. He spent several years as a biological technician with the U.S. Forest Service and Bureau of Land Management in the Pacific Northwest surveying birds and various plants and animals. Tom is also the lead administrator of the popular Facebook group, Lichens, Mosses, Ferns, and Fungi.
