Sunday was the official First Day of Spring. As if celebrating the new season, I found mosses in all shades of green.
There are more than 12,000 species of moss. Some grow in cushions, some in sheets that cover the ground, some with feathery plumes, others resembling tiny spiky trees.
Go on a Moss Hunt:
- how many different kinds of moss can you find in your yard, around the neighborhood, and in local parks?
- try to describe - or make a visual catalog of - all the shades of green you find.
- where do you find moss growing?
