Participants will begin indoors at the Arboretum’s Weld Hill Research Building with a lecture and then move outdoors to Hemlock Hill and Bussey Brook for a fern foray. Dress for indoor and outdoor learning. The class will take place Friday, June 1, from 2 – 5 (originally scheduled for June 3, so take note.) Fee $40 Arboretum member, $50 nonmember.
