The Irvine Nature Center is putting on a fern-identification walk on Saturday. Maryland is home to 25 different types of ferns, and people on the tour will see roughly 15 types. A naturalist from the center will explain how to tell one fern from another, folklore surrounding the plant and how they have adapted to survive in the minimal light at the forest floor.
The walk is about a mile. It starts at the nature center at 10 a.m. and goes until noon.
The cost is $8, or $5 for members. Call to register by tomorrow.
The Irvine Nature Center is at 8400 Greenspring Ave. in Stevenson. Call 410-484-2413 or visit www.explorenature.org.
