Sponsored by Maryland Native Plant Society
Leader: Dwight Johnson

Learn to identify some common and less common ferns along the Gunpowder River just north of Perry Hall. We should see at least a dozen fern species, plus other plants. We will explore along two paths that are less than one mile each. Both paths are flat, easy walking with a few small, easy stream crossings that could be muddy if it has recently rained.

Contact (for additional information, not to register):  Dwight Johnson 551- 486-8518 or dwightmjohnson at

Lunch, water, field guides and hand lenses if you have them. 'Key to the Ferns of Maryland' is on the MNPS website.

Free. Registration is Required. Limited to 14. Through May 27, registration is limited to members-only.

Directions: included in registration confirmation.
