Hitchcock Center for the Environment in Amherst
explore a variety of ferns found in our local forests, fields and rock ledges on Mt. Toby.
“We’ll see over twenty species and learn about their habitats and adaptations. Many think that all ferns look alike ... and they do in some ways. But once you start noticing the sometimes subtle differences you can become expert at distinguishing the various species.”
August 18, 9:00am - 1:00pm
Ted will explain some simple ways of looking at ferns to be able to distinguish the various species. A list of species we will encounter will be provided, with lots of time for practice at telling them apart. No previous knowledge needed. Bring your curiosity and your observation skills and plan to have fun exploring!
