Don’t bust the crust!

Following disturbance such as foot traffic, living communities of cyanobacteria, lichens, algae, mosses, fungi, and bacteria can blown away or washed away in a storm. These organisms are slow-growing (they are putting up with low water and high light!) so it can take months to years to decades to recover!

Stay on the trails, folks, and keep your furry friends on the trails too!
