Field Trips

Field trips are a vital component of our Fern and Wildflower Society. We enjoy meeting with each other and discovering wildflowers and ferns in their wild habitats, gardens, and conservatories. There is always something new to learn and places to visit that perhaps you did not know existed.

About Us

The purpose of the DVFWS shall be to encourage the enjoyment of ferns and wildflowers by cultivating and propagating them in the home garden; by studying them in their wild habitats, gardens, and conservatories; by promoting their conservation and preservation, and by providing a forum for the exchange of information and expertise.

Two general membership meetings are held each year and many field trips are scheduled each year to areas rich in botanical interest. Membership is available for individuals or for a household for one year or three years. For additional information contact any of the officers.
