Mountain Moss Enterprises is committed to educational outreach and offers a number of Go Green With Moss programs including lectures, workshops, classes and nature hikes.

These informative programs include PowerPoint presentations with impressive photographs, “hands-on” bryophyte specimens to take a “closer look” and moss art exhibits. The educational presentations can be combined with a workshop where each person makes their own moss dish garden or “moss-as-art” creation to take home. “Mossin’ in the Woods” hikes provide an opportunity for native plant enthusiasts to identify common bryophytes often overlooked in our forests.

With zeal and enthusiasm, Mossin’ Annie shares her love and knowledge of mosses with all ages.  She has presented programs at The North Carolina Arboretum, The North Carolina Botanical Garden, the Annual Wildflower Pilgrimage in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, and for the North Carolina Native Plant Society. Garden clubs and environmental groups throughout the Southeast have responded with positive reactions and encouragement for Mossin’ Annie’s advocacy efforts. Participants will leave with a “mossy” smile and will view bryophytes with a newfound appreciation.

You are a treasure!  We all so enjoyed having you and your program was fantastic!  I have had so many positive comments already!

And of course the workshop was a highlight too. ~Peachtree Garden Club, Atlanta, Georgia

Contact Mossin’ Annie for more information about requested honorarium and associated fees for Go Green With Moss programs. It is recommended that you schedule your event well in advance. However, consider Mountain Moss as a solution for last-minute program cancellation dilemma. We might have an opening in our schedule. A Mountain Moss program will be an event to remember.

    FYI — To schedule a Go Green With Moss lecture/workshop/hike, contact me directly: mossinannie@gmail.com. While some groups open their meetings, garden clubs tend to keep the events private for members only.
    Thanks for asking about Mountain Moss educational programs.

    Hi Mossin Annie,
    I see that you have done programs in Highland, NC. Will you be offering any soon? Do you speak at Garden clubs in this area. I belong to the Otto Garden club and we are looking for speakers. What do you charge to speak?
    Thank you,
