Redwood forests support diverse assortments of bryophytes (mosses, liverworts, and hornworts) and lichens. These amazing and abundant organisms stabilize soils, reduce water and nutrient run-off, fix nitrogen, provide habitat/nesting material, and are sensitive indicators of environmental change.

We will start in the classroom with a short presentation, and then slowly walk through Armstrong Redwoods looking for moss growing on the ground, rocks, and trees.
