WALPOLE, N.H. – Would you like to learn how to identify some of the ferns you come across in your travels but always thought that fern identification was just too complicated? Well this workshop is for you.
Join Lynn Levine, educator, forester, naturalist, and author of the new fern identification field guide “Identifying Ferns the Easy Way: A Pocket Guide for Common Ferns of the Northeast,” for a fern walk Sunday, Sept. 29, from 1-3:30 p.m., at Distant Hill Gardens and Nature Trail in Walpole, N.H.
The afternoon will start with an indoor presentation teaching you how to use the simple identification method described in Lynn’s book, followed by an easy walk in the woods of Distant Hill to view many of these ferns up close. You will be introduced to all manner of native ferns, from the large and beautiful Ostrich Fern to the tiny and unique Grape Fern. With almost two-dozen species of ferns native to Distant Hill, this will be a workshop not to be missed by any fern-lover.
