Where did you find it?: Caldwell Woods
Write a paragraph about your item. Some ideas of information to include are: Is it old or new? What species is it from or what is its classification? Why is it important? What is its role in nature?: My artifact is a small tree branch. The small tree branch has lichens on it. It is completely harmless to a tree and it is a symbiotic relationship between algae and fungi. Symbiotic means working together.
What makes it interesting to you? Why did you choose this item?: It is interesting because the lichen looks beautiful and ugly at the same time. So I figured that I would take it to show at co-op because it is unique.
