Winter Lecture Series: Fabulous Ferns of Pennsylvania and New Jersey

Date: Sunday, January 21
Time: 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm


Ferns have inhabited our region for millions of years – long before the dinosaurs roamed the landscape. Today, most species are found in the tropics, but Pennsylvania and New Jersey are home to a rich diversity of native ferns. This comprehensive program with naturalist Pete Bacinski covers up-to-date information on new names and taxonomic splits of more than 50 species of native ferns. We’re sure you’ll find it “ferntastic.”

Pete Bacinski is a naturalist, photographer and field trip guide that has been a leader in the field of ornithology for many decades. He has written for numerous local, state and national publications and has won the World Series of Birding Competition three times.

Walk-ins welcome as space allows.
