Meet Lichen Photographer and Department of Environmental Conservation Steward, John Franklin, at our new exhibit at the Sam’s Point Visitors Center. Join John for a general discussion of lichens, those intrepid little organisms that we see everywhere we look. They grow 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. Pre-registration is recommended (but not required) by calling Sam's Point at 845-647-7989.
