Course overview

Ferns are ferntastic! This class will reveal the unique structure and fascinating life histories of ferns and lycophytes. Examine their taxonomy, including how names are chosen, and describe, classify, and identify them. Investigate the intriguing evolutionary history of ferns and lycophytes. Learn how easy it is to grow ferns and how to garden with them. Two field trips will focus on the identification and ecology of our native ferns and lycophytes. Students must have a good quality 10X-14X hand lens or they will miss the marvelous detail of these wonderful plants. If minimum student enrollment is not reached by one week before the scheduled start date, the course may be canceled. Field Trip Dates are: July 15 and July 22, 2017.
