Ferns, More Important Than You Might Think and How to Know the Common Ones
Many people think ferns are pretty. They lend texture to our landscapes. But that’s not all. Don will discuss the contributions they have made to our world and show what to look for to distinguish about 20 common species.
Our presenter is Don Lubin, who has been growing ferns since 1980 and doing field identification since 1991. He has led workshops and field trips since 1998 for the Native Plant Trust and others. Don assisted Cheryl Lowe and Elizabeth Farnsworth in their revision of Boughton Cobb’s Field Guide To The Ferns and is a co-author of the Newton Conservators Almanac and other publications.
