Light green lichen on a big rock next to Massabesic Middle school.
The area that we were in was a small forest. And there were lot's of rocks with lichen on them.
Are mission was to find lichen in the area of Massabesic Middle School. There was 15 centimeters of snow on the ground. The temperature was 3 degrees celcius. The wind speed was 18 mph gust 26 mph. I think the lichen that grows on a rock that we have is green map lichen. The scientific name for green map lichen is Rhizocarpon geographicum. I think it's Green map lichen because its light green, grows on a rock, and is crusty just like other websites describe it. The ground was snowy and muddy.
