Native Ferns of the Georgia Piedmont

June 2, 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Connie Gray, native plant specialist, Georgia Native Plant Society – Athens Chapter


This course will focus on the most common ferns typically found in the Piedmont region of Georgia. We will begin with an introduction to the biology and morphology of ferns, especially those features that will help you identify the different species. The natural habitats of these different ferns will also be discussed. We will examine each of these ferns through a presentation, an outdoor venture to see many of these plants in person in the Dunson Native Flora Garden, and we will examine samples under magnification when we come back indoors. The primary focus of the course is to learn to recognize and appreciate these beautiful and fascinating native plants. There will be some discussion about using them in gardens as well.

This class is an elective for the Certificate in Native Plants.
