ADV - Ferns, Wetlands and Other Curiosities
East Bethel, MN 55005
Cedar Creek wetlands and wetland edges have a fabulous display of ferns. Learn about them from an expert – Barb Delaney, a botanist who has spent decades working in wetland edges at Cedar Creek. Together with oak uplands, we’ll see most of the species that occur here, and have a great opportunity to review their names and characteristics. Plus, the wetland edges are beautiful places to explore: mosses, two species of blueberries, blue-bead lily, bunchberry, coral fungi, and much more! The walk is fairly easy but be prepared for some scratchy plants and biting insects. Join Barb for this special opportunity to explore and learn at Cedar Creek Ecosystem Science Reserve!
The course cost is $15 and includes course manuals and supplies.
Meeting from 9:30 A.M. to 11:30 A.M. on:
