A walk through the trees: taking your eyes higher

Thursday 5 October 2023, 14:30

Zoom sur des lichens qui sont sur une écorce d'un arbre en ville.

Walk led by biologist Philippe Clerc and an MEG cultural mediator. Thursday, October 5th, 2:30 pm to 4:30 pm.

Did you see a mushroom this morning? This walk invites you to rediscover the urban environment by focusing your attention on living creatures that are often overlooked: mushrooms and lichens in particular.
From the very beginnings of life on earth, living beings of all kinds have constantly forged relationships with one another. From parasitism to mutual symbiosis, everything is interrelated. The Earth is home to an immense community, an extraordinary network of living beings linking us all together. In keeping with the MEG's temporary exhibition, this walk in an urban environment invites us to focus on this "Being together" as it is realised in fungi and more particularly in lichens.
