April 3rd Program – Lichens

Lichens

Matt Nelson will reveal to us the fascinating world of lichens. How this partnership of fungi and algae works and how lichens are useful in environmental studies.

Dr. Matthew Nelson is a researcher at the Field Museum of Natural History, Chicago.

Niles Historical & Cultural Center is about a tenth of a mile Southeast from the Golf-Mill Shopping center. The former sheriff’s office has parking behind the building. The meeting room is on the third floor and is accessible by elevator as well as a large staircase. Restrooms are available on first and third floors. A museum volunteer will open the building for us this evening. For public transport from the city, take the Blue Line to the Jefferson Park CTA Station, from there it is 20 minutes on the PACE #270 bus to Milwaukee and Elizabeth. The museum is open to the public Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 10:30 AM to 3:00 PM.
