Ferns, Mosses, and Forest Plants

Join Helen Hamilton, of the Virginia Native Plant Society, to look for summer forest plants, ferns, and mosses on a short trail in Freedom Park. The Historic Rivers Chapter of Virginia Master Naturalists was involved in developing a path that leads to a deep ravine heavily covered with low herbaceous plants. Bring a magnifier to look at tiny plants and a camera to photograph the larger ones. Park by the playground near the Go Ape facility. 9 AM - 10:30 am. Saturday July 14th.

Contact Helen at 757-564-4494 or helen48@cox.net for information.
