Learn how to identify native ferns and understand their role in native ecosystems. Explore the Klamath-Siskiyou’s diverse fern habitats, including rock, forest and riparian areas. In the spring, ferns are unfurling intricately shaped fronds and developing reproductive spores. On Day 1, we’ll learn fern terminology, get to know the local ferns and practice keying. Day 2’s field trip will take us to a special high-elevation location where we’ll study sword ferns, wood ferns, maidenhairs and others. Classroom sessions will cover the biology and diversity of ferns, with an emphasis on southwestern Oregon species.
* Adiantum jordanii, A. aleucticum, A. capillus-veneris. Image shows habit, ultimate segment with marginal sori, and rhizome scales of each of these three ferns.
