Have you ever wondered what goes on in the tiny world of mosses? In this workshop, we will be learning and discussing the basics of moss, including their environment, structure, and types of moss that you would find growing in Western New York. You will then construct your very own moss terrarium, complete with small decorations of your choice.  We will go over moss maintenance, and you will be on your way with your own tiny moss world! All plant material and supplies are included.
