Peace on Timpoochee Trail - December, 2008

Since March, 2007, I've been watching an old growth patch of deer lichen along a Florida Scenic Corridor: Scenic Highway 30-A in NW Florida. In July 2007 and again in May 2008 a mowing machine trimming grass beside the bike path has run over the lichen, crushing it. I called this "Terror on the Timpoochee Trail". In December 2008, I made this movie while discovering that another mowing missed the plants leaving them to continue recovering. Deer lichen is slow growing. See a video as I discover that the mower has spared the deer lichen.
