What a treat this field trip will be! The Lost Lake Wetland and Wildlife Preserve has habitats that support great moss diversity. Join OHA and Erica Heinlen, M.S., Zone Botanist for the Tonasket Ranger District, Colville National Forest, as we walk, talk, and learn together about moss structures and identifying features, ecological adaptations and functions. Erica manages the sensitive botanical species and native plant programs for the Tonasket and Republic Ranger Districts of the Colville National Forest. She is excited to share her love for plants and bryophytes with others. It will be a fun day exploring these small jewels in the forest!
