Educational Outreach -- KEYNOTE SPEAKER, LECTURES, WORKSHOPS
Mountain Moss Enterprises is committed to educational outreach and offers a number of Go Green With Moss programs including lectures, workshops, classes and nature hikes. Mossin' Annie is a lively and informative keynote speaker for gardening conferences.
These informative programs include PowerPoint presentations with impressive photographs, "hands-on" bryophyte specimens to take a "closer look" and moss art exhibits. The educational presentations can be combined with a workshop where each person makes their own moss dish garden or "moss-as-art" creation to take home. "Mossin' in the Woods" hikes provide an opportunity for native plant enthusiasts to identify common bryophytes often overlooked in our forests.
With zeal and enthusiasm, Mossin' Annie shares her love and knowledge of mosses with all ages. She has presented programs at the prestigious Philadelphia Flower Show, North Carolina Arboretum, Cullowhee Native Plant Conference, and the Atlanta Botanical Garden. Garden clubs and environmental groups throughout the US have responded with positive reactions and encouragement for Mossin' Annie's advocacy efforts. Participants will leave with a "mossy" smile and will view bryophytes with a newfound appreciation.
