Cool Outdoor Stuff: Let Us Now Praise Famous Bryozoans


In this episode of Cool Outdoor Stuff, Echo Hill Outdoor School’s Andrew McCown puts the spotlight on the wonders of freshwater Bryozoans on the Eastern Shore. These “moss animals” are not candidates for best-looking species, but they do win our attention with their extraordinary history of survival and reproduction.

The video is approximately two minutes in length. Videography by John Andrew McCown

    Andy McCown is the best part of “Cool Outdoor Stuff,” and his lesson on bryozoans is very cool, indeed. At last, a living thing that’s older than I am. (A half-billion years is really truly old.)
