on the rocks and on the trees around us, and often underfoot as we walk the many trails in the park preserve. View his collection of amazing close-up macro photographs and see actual samples of some of the wonderful and colorful lichens that are found throughout Minnewaska State Park Preserve. This photo exhibit will give you a first-hand look at the incredible beauty and complexity of these simple and often colorful organisms. Don’t miss out on this great opportunity to learn about Shawangunk lichens.Children must be accompanied by a parent or guardian over the age of 18. Meet at the Sam’s Point Visitor Center.
