Mother's Day Fern & Flower Walk
Silvery Spleenwort

Sunday, May 12, 1:00 pm until 3:00 pm
Chard Pond, Sunderland MA

Join us on a pleasant hike around the Chard Pond area, where there are lots of interesting ferns and some lovely spring wildflowers. This unusual looking fern is Silvery Spleenwort, also called Silvery Glade Fern (Deparia acrostichoides).

There is parking along the road. There are some areas of mud and a little bit of slope on the hike. Unfortunately Poison Ivy is also present, and probably ticks.
