Rocky Bayou State Park deer lichen

The Red Cedar Nature Trail at Rocky Bayou State Park has open vistas of florest floor carpeted in deer lichen under towering trees. You see primarily powder-puff lichen (tentatively Cladonia evansii). It is in Okaloosa County, NW Florida, east of Niceville on Hwy 20. The zooming image above, as well as images of two kinds were photographed 2009-04-01. See a title image and video of this deer lichen (choose Flash or QuickTime)

On 2009-04-24 I discovered a growth of the sprawling "Jester lichen" type on the Sand Pine Trail. See also the travel section for the park featuring a video of a walk.

On May 2, 2009 wholeo.net hosted a deer lichen display and led a hike as part of the Choctawhatchee Estuary Family Festival. See a map of the Red Cedar Nature Trail for the hike. See a FAQ handout (updated for May 1, 2010) Festival.
