Join us as we continue to expand and build upon our rich FERN GLADE RESTORATION AREA. Lech Naumovich, Golden Hour Restoration Institute, will begin with a short Restoration History of Fern Glade, Fern ID, and Biology. Then we will pull ivy and other weeds from the area and noting any new ferns, trilliums, and other early spring flowers that should be emerging.
Everyone Welcome. Dress in layers for the changing weather and shoes with good tread.
We provide tools, snacks and water.
Fern Glade was begun three years ago when we cleared a patch of knee deep ivy in a flat area along Claremont Ave Trail, flagged the ivy and other natives that were there to give the natives a chance to grow. And grow they did. It's a joy to see. We remove ivy each winter and by spring the ferns have multiplied. Fern Glade has become our most popular restoration site - click on the links below to see for yourself the History and Expansion of this most beautiful spot in Garber and then join the fun on January 21st in Fern Glade.
