Ferns and their allies

Learn how to tell Lady-ferns from Male-ferns and Hard-ferns from Soft Shield-ferns with local expert Bob Ellis and National Trust Ranger Mary Ghullam.

  • Booking advisable

We will be introduced to the unusual life cycle of the fern and learn how to identify different species, both through examining specimens in the classroom and through exploring the ferns growing in Sheringham Park. This workshop is part of a partnership programme between Norfolk Wildlife Trust and the National Trust. Free parking for non-members, for this event only.
