Exploring and Observing Mosses

Mosses Exploration Icon ImageTake a walk into nearly any natural area in Jefferson County and you’re sure to see phenomenal examples of the mosses that call this area home. From tiny mosses growing on the sturdy surface of a granite boulder, to dramatic mosses that coat and drip from native trees, magical mosses are truly all around us.

In the Mosses virtual nature walk, biologist Tracy Hudson will introduce us to several easy-to-find species around our homes and in local forests.

After watching the virtual nature walk, find a set of resources and activities on the page below.
