Rocky Bayou State Park deer lichen, Sand Pine Trail

The Sand Pine Trail at Rocky Bayou State Park has some vistas of deer lichen similar to that on the Red Cedar Trail. You see primarily powder-puff lichen (tentatively Cladonia evansii). However, on 2009-04-24 I discovered an extensive growth of the sprawling Jester lichen type (tentatively Cladonia leporina) shown in the zooming image above. This growth is merely a small area near the trail. On 2009-04-29 I photographed a close-up in the same area. The GPS coordinates are: 30° 29' 31.5" N, 086° 25' 28.6" W. See also a photo from the park with powder-puff and jester lichen together.

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.
