Award-winning Canadian poet, editor, and educator Don McKay has pushed the lichen-naming bid to $3,500! McKay is the author of twelve books of poetry and has been publishing since 1973. His poems are ecologically centred, inspired by the conflict between inspiration and spiritual, instinct and knowledge and he sees his writing as “nature poetry in a time of environmental crisis.”

All proceeds from the naming auction go to the Ancient Forest Alliance.
