Calling all fern enthusiasts! Our March talk will feature Ed Alverson discussing “Ecology of North Western Native Ferns.” Ed has a Masters degree in Botany from Oregon State University, where he studied the systematics of the fern genus Cryptogramma. He has 35 years of experience as a field botanist in the Pacific Northwest, and taught his first fern workshop for WNPS in 1986. Ed now works as an independent botanical consultant, is a Research Associate at the Burke Museum's University of Washington Herbarium, and has authored the revised treatments for many of the fern families for the second edition of Flora of the Pacific Northwest.

All the fern pictures were provided by NW chapter member Lynn Schueler.
