Lichen Buddies

During my dissertation, I invented Lichen Buddies as a way to engage the public [particularly children] in learning about lichens. These are felt and pipecleaner representations of actual lichen species. Activities with Lichen Buddies include "collecting" them from the field, keying them out, or making your own. And yes, while the googly eyes are not biologically accurate, they do make the Lichen Buddies more relatable.
