Join us for an a-moss-ing webinar!

Mosses are easily overlooked, but they’re hugely important to Alberta’s ecosystems. From filtering water and serving as food and habitat to better-known species, to maintaining soil and—in some places—even outstripping the primary productivity of the forest canopy far above, these tiny, unsung plants are full of surprises.

On November 3rd @ noon Mountain Time, join ABMI bryologist Krista Williams for a free webinar as she discusses the ABMI’s bryophyte (moss + liverwort) research, and why collecting data on these species is important to Albertans and helps to support land-use decision making.

The webinar is free, but please RSVP here so we know to expect you. The webinar will also be archived on our YouTube channel if you can’t make the live event, or just want to relive all the action.
