A Visit to the Miniature Forest
Gain insights into the mosses of Northeastern Connecticut with Dr. Bernard Goffinet of the University of Connecticut’s Department of Ecology & Evolutionary Biology.
This Walktober event is hosted by the CT State Museum of Natural History, to compliment the formal opening of the exhibit “Right Below Your Feet,” in the Wilbur Cross Building at UConn, Storrs.
Join Dr. Goffinet on an easy hike in the 165-acre parcel knowns as the HEEP, or Hillside Environmental Education Park. The HEEP consists of uplands, meadows, woodlands, wetlands (including vernal pools) and riparian zones around Cedar Swamp Brook. Participants will explore, discover, and hear stories about native mosses and the miniature forest that can be found right below their feet.
*** This event is FREE and open to the public but registration is recommended! ***
