|BobS dove into the knee high ivy and|
uncovered a California Buckeye!
|In a short time mounds of ivy removed and|
|Lauren, Garber's newest Steward, from the|
Claremont Hotel's Sustainability Committee,
is all smiles as she freed a hillside
of ferns from the trail just above Fern Glade.
|An hour ago this beautiful grove of ferns|
was smothered in ivy.
|Fern Glade today - it's hard to believe that 1 1/2 years ago Fern Glade was smothered in|
ivy. It was Lech Naumovich, Golden Hour Restoration Institute, that had the vision
that the ferns and other natives would thrive once the ivy was removed. The flags represent
the ferns that we uncovered in December, 2013 - the rest propagated since. Click here to see pictures of that workshop in which Fern Glade was born.
