Handbook of Nature Study Newsletter – Mushrooms Lichen Moss

Handbook of Nature Study March Newsletter Cover Button
March 2013 – Mushrooms, Lichen, and Moss

I know this month’s topic of mushrooms, lichen, and moss is not going to sound appealing to many of you at first glance. But, I encourage you to give it a try by reading each week’s challenge, covering the material as assigned in the Handbook of Nature Study, and then keeping your eyes open for your nature study opportunities. You can further generate some interest in the topic by gathering any resources you have and picking up a book or two at the library. I encourage everyone to participate as much as possible and if you find you need to switch to another topic that presents itself during the month of March…by all means, go with the interest.

Spring will be here in a few weeks and the mood for nature study will change along with it.

Make sure to download, save, and/or print the newsletter for future reference when you may come across a mushroom or some lichen or moss.

  1. Thank you so much! I just joined your blog and signed up for your newsletter.

    Did you write those lovely, descriptive paragraphs underneath the drawings?

    Did you also create the drawings themselves?

    Such wonderful artwork and writing!

    Thank you once again!
