NYBG EcoFlora January EcoQuest Challenge


Lichen are fungi that form associations with photosynthetic algae. Highly sensitive to air quality, Lichens were all but eliminated from New York City before federal regulations to curb pollution were enacted in 1970. Today Lichens have recolonized with nearly 100 species spread throughout the five boroughs, acting as bioindicators of improved air quality. You can help document the growing biodiversity of the City (and cleaner environment) by observing Lichens in your neighborhood. Visit the LOCATE LICHEN Project Page

To learn more about the fascinating world of Lichens, join us Monday, January 11, 2021 at 5:00 PM for New York City Lichens, an Urban Experience, by NYBG lichenologist, Dr. James Lendemer. The presentation is free and open to the public. Register Here
