Speaker Programs

“25 Common Ferns of Michigan” speaker program will be held on Thursday, January 11th at the Royal Oak Historical Museum (on Webster, just west of Crooks) beginning at 7:00 pm.  Join naturalist Don Drife, Royal Oak Nature Society’s botanist, for this presentation on ferns commonly seen in Michigan. Michigan’s 108 named pteridophyte species are a manageable group to learn. This talk will start you on your way to learn this group or be a review of the species. Basic terminology will be reviewed, and species key characters will be shared along with numerous pictures showing the plants in their natural habitats along with closeups showing key characters.  There is no cost & registration is not required.
