Fern Identification for Beginners

With Instructor Randy Stone of the Pioneer Valley Fern Society

When: Sunday, June 9th 

Time: 1pm-5pm

Location: Indoor 1.5 Introduction to Ferns, then outdoor for an easy walk for ID along nearby Green River Rd. 

Meeting at 20 Sanderson Street, Room 203 Greenfield, MA 01301 

This introduction to ferns will be helpful and informative for anyone interested in learning how to identify ferns—be it for confirming wetland boundaries, incorporating native ferns in a naturalized landscape, or honing your “botanizing” skills. Come explore a fabulous assortment of ferns—including maidenhair, oak, bulblet, and fragile ferns—along the roadside in Greenfield and Colrain, and learn to identify the most common ferns of our area. An indoor classroom session will cover basic fern biology, identification techniques, and ecology; and the field session will provide simple and easy methods for positive field identification.

Please bring a hand lens if you have one, your lunch, a water bottle, and you’re encouraged to dress defensively (for mosquitoes and ticks). Join us for one of the season’s most fun and fascinating workshops!

Class cost will include a copy of the publication Fern Finder Pocket Guide by Barbara Hallowell, as well as any handouts instructor Stone gives out. 

Cost to Attend:

MACC Members: $45.00

Non-Members: $55.00

Students: $30.00

Please join us for this fun filled short afternoon class.
