Re: Summer Fern Forays in the Smokey Mountains

Yes, there will be more this year. I would contact Pat Cox if you are interested. She can be reached at the following e-mail address: pbcox@tva.gov

The first foray will be the weekend of May 22 near Cades Cove. Other dates and location are tentative:

June 12--???? July 10--??? Aug 21--???

Subject: 	[ferns] Summer Fern Forays in the Smokey Mountains

As part of the All Taxa Biodiversity Inventory in the Great Smokey Mountains National Park, fern forays are held each summer to assist with inventorying all fern taxa in the park. This summer we will have three such fern forays: May 31, June 21, and July 12. These forays involve running transects on trails in the park, and collecting abundance data on ferns every 200 meters. If you are interested in attending this year's forays, please contact either myself or Pat Cox (pcox@utk.edu). If you
are unfamiliar with ferns in the eastern US, this is a great way to learn. Many of the volunteers who help us do not know the different fern taxa at the beginning of the day, but are fairly adept by the end. Its a lot of fun and you can have the satisfaction of assisting in the first project to inventory all living organisms within a relatively large area, the Great Smokey Mountains.
