All are welcome with an interest in outdoor walks and field trips to see native plants in the ground.  Dues are $10 a year or $14 for a couple in one household. Click on Membership on the left to see categories of membership.

We hold three business meetings in November, March and at a summer picnic. From April to October we take walks, aka field trips, to explore natural areas and gardens displaying native plants and ferns. We educate others from an exhibit at the Philadelphia Flower Show. 
A speaker on ferns is available for lectures to other societies. 

About Us: Mission

The Delaware Valley Fern & Wildflower Society is a plant society formed in 1975 to explore ferns in nature. We welcomes all people with an interest in walking to discover native ferns, native wildflowers, and native plants where they grow, and sharing the experience with other plant lovers. From April to October, members meet on field trips and short walks to appreciate plants in nature or in gardens. JOIN US!
