Bryophytes and lichens of Myles Standish State Forest.
An easy, 50-minute journey from Providence, Myles Standish State Forest is home to a broad diversity of coastal plain bryophytes and lichens. It is especially rich in Cladoniaceae (Sam Hammer collected many species here for his Cladoniaceae Exsiccatae Americanae). We will spend all-day in the field, taking a brief foray into nearby South Carver, MA for lunch. We have the opportunity to stop at other sites on the way to and/or from the State Forest depending on what the group wants to do. This trip is intended mainly for bryologists and lichenologists. Bring sturdy hiking shoes, insect repellent, and a handlens! Collecting permits TBA but bring collecting equipment/bags in case we can.
