Ouabache Trails Park, Vincennes, IndianaMosses, lichens, and liverworts grow on trees, stumps, old logs, rocks, and sometimes even soil. Learn about them during a casual walk beginning at 2 p.m. March 8, 2020, in Ouabache Trails Park, 4930 East State Road 201, Bluffton, Indiana.

On this Second Sunday Nature Walk, participants will discover the amazing worlds made up of tiny organisms. (Bring a magnifying lens of some kind, although a limited number will be provided). Caution: this walk involves a few steep slopes.

Mosses, lichens, and liverworts can be easily overlooked, but they are powerhouses and “first colonizers” that start growing on hard surfaces, and provide places for other plants to take hold – as well as provide environments for specific, tiny animals to flourish. They are worlds unto themselves, and they are present at any time of year.
