May 19, 2017

Camden — Camden Public Library, 55 Main St., presents a moss orientation Tuesday, May 30, at 7 p.m. Diann Henderson, a retired middle school math and science teacher, explains what mosses are, where and how they grow and their role in the environment.

The library will also sponsor a field trip to look for and study mosses May 31 from 9 to 11 a.m. The trip will also be led by Henderson. Participants should meet at the Camden Hills State Park parking lot at 8:45 a.m. Wear appropriate clothing to walk in the woods, a raincoat, and boots if needed. A notebook, pen and hand lens will be useful. The goal will be to identify the two main categories of moss (Acrocarpous and Pleurocarpous), to identify the reproductive sporophytes, and to identify five to seven of the common mosses found there.
