In the wild and in the garden, ferns are a beautiful part of natural
landscapes. Come learn how to identify many of our native ferns on
Thursday, July 12, when we will welcome Botany Chair Cris Fleming. During
the first hour, Cris will discuss the terminology used to identify ferns and
will demonstrate these terms using specimens of different fern species.
Then she will lead a short walk along the Native Plant Trail at Green Spring
Gardens, where participants will get a chance to recognize or key out many
ferns in the large and varied collection.

VNPS programs are free and open to the public. Reservations are required.

Space is limited to 20 people. Please RSVP to Diana Carter at
