Joe Metzger, botanist and MNPS member, will give a workshop on the many species of native ferns found in Maryland. Ferns are characteristic plants of many habitats throughout the state, ranging from coastal plain lowlands and bogs to rocky cliffs of the Appalachians. Natural habitats, distribution, and rarity will be discussed, with an emphasis on field identification. Live plant material will be used.
