Description

Ellen Hutchins Festival event: Join a hunt for native cryptogamic (spore-producing) plants. Led by Howard Fox, Botanist, National Botanic Gardens/OPW & Maria Cullen, Irish Geomycologist.

Ellen’s list of plants in her neighbourhood included many entries for mosses, liverworts & lichens; some noted as having been found in the garden and grounds at Ballylickey. With access to some of these grounds, how many of the plants will still be there, more than two hundred years later? Help find them, learn about cryptogamic plants & observe some of their features through microscopes & hand lens with guidance from the experts, Howard & Maria, annual contributors to the Ellen Hutchins Festival.
