(Rain Date: June 23)
The Webster and Cohen Conservation areas and the DCR Hammond Pond Reservation form a large wooded expanse that stretches from the shopping malls of Route 9 almost to Newton Centre. The woods are home to 20 kinds of ferns and related plants. We will visit the southeast corner near Hammond Pond and see a dozen or more kinds of ferns.
Wear long pants to protect against poison ivy and bugs. If you have a hand lens, bring it. Bring any native fern you would like me to identify.
Park and meet near the woods behind The Street Shopping Center (near Davio’s Restaurant), between the pond and Hammond Pond Parkway.
