About the event

Ferns are a conspicuous and important part of our woodlands, and can be an attractive feature of old walls and buildings. Horsetails can be abundant in wetlands, and interesting species occur in other habitats.

Many would-be botanists assume both groups ‘all look the same’ and consider them difficult. In fact, the relatively small number of species occurring locally can be identified in the field with the naked eye or a hand lens, and we should see most local species on the day. Being sensitive to patterns of rainfall and temperature, ferns are also good indicators of climate change.
