Visiting with Fronds

September 10 @ 9:30 am - 11:00 am

Ferns are beautiful additions to our landscapes, their graceful fronds embellishing the forest understory and  edges of streams, swamps and clearings. Around 75 species of ferns can be found in New England, with only a dozen that are relatively common.

Join Maine Master Naturalist instructor Jeff Pengel in exploring the natural history of some common ferns that inhabit coastal Maine. Jeff will elaborate on the ecology and unique biological adaptations of ferns and allies we encounter at the Preserve and share identification tips for the species we find.

A hand lens is helpful but not required – loaners will be available. Cameras welcome. Max participants of 18. Children 13+ welcome.

Registration for this walk will open in July.
