Fern Identification and Ecology
Join Randy Stone of the Pioneer Valley Fern Society for 'Fern Identification and Ecology' workshop. Of interest to both conservationists and gardeners, the event will start with indoor instruction on basic fern biology, identification techniques, and ecology, followed by a short lunch break(please bring your own lunch). The afternoon will be spent in the gardens and woods of Distant Hill learning how to identify a number of species of native ferns. Influences of the soil, site location, and moisture on fern species distribution and composition will also be discussed. You will be introduced to all manner of native ferns, from the large and beautiful Ostrich fern to a species or two of the tiny and unique Grape Ferns. With almost two dozen species of ferns native to Distant Hill, this will be a workshop not to be missed by any fern-lover. Please bring a hand lens if you have one, a water bottle, and you’re encouraged to dress defensively for mosquitoes and ticks. And don't forget to bring your own lunch!
