Any hike in the temperate Southern Appalachians presents opportunities in all shapes and sizes to lean in close and learn more about ferns and fern allies. Botanist David Phillips leads this immersive field-based workshop on the biology and identification of the region’s fascinating ferns. A hand lens and field journal are essential tools on the trail. Students should dress comfortably for the weather and be able to make short walks on moderate and some uphill terrain without assistance.
