Your mission...

Find moss north

Can you work out which direction is north just by looking for moss on trees?

Mission Information
Moss does not like too much light. In the northern hemisphere this means that it tends to shelter on the northern side of trees. If the tree is well shaded on all sides then it will grow on all sides. 

 Tip: You will need a compass, map or a GPS to work out if you are right.
Mission Risk: Low

Low. This should be easy but take care.

Be careful you don't get lost...
