Lunch N’ Learn : “Miraculous Moss” with Susie Percy

March 18, 2020 at 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

This event is postponed.

The Lunch N’ Learn series is an hour-long, member perk that occurs once a quarter. Each class condenses natural history relevant to the Arizona Mogollon Highlands into a lunch’s worth of information.
Lunch is not provided.

Envision a cool mossy bank… Many people think of the Pacific Northwest, but this it is common right here in the Central Arizona Highlands! Moss is everywhere here, and in this Lunch N Learn you will explore the role of moss and how it lives in such an arid region. We will discuss why it was the first land plant, its cycle of reproduction, interactions with tardigrades, and how it is utilized by humans and other animals. After discussion, we will use microscopes to take a closer look at this unassuming but remarkable life.

This is a FREE, members-only event.
