NYBG EcoFlora Update July 2020

The July EcoQuest Challenge is CLIMBING THE WALLS

Save time and ensure your observations are included by selecting the project CLIMBING THE WALLS using the mobile or desktop program.

The Latin word for wall is murus, the origin of the word mural. Many plant species are able to grow on walls, particularly those adapted to lime, a common ingredient in concrete and mortar. Ferns, grasses, and even some trees are often found growing on walls. How many different species can you find climbing the walls where you live? Lichens count too!
