We like ferns. We like growing ferns.

We meet monthly on the third Thursday at 7:30pm in room 101 of the Casa del Prado in Balboa Park. We share room 101 with other organizations so there is a chance that the meeting date might change, check the Upcoming Meetings section for the correct meeting dates.

We have members that include nationally recognized growers and members that just enjoy the timeless beauty of these ancient plants.

Our August fern show and sale showcases a wide variety of exquisite fern specimens on view and for sale.

Yearly membership dues are $12.00 for a household. Members will receive “The Fern World” newsletter by mail or email.

Enjoy monthly meetings where a wide variety of fern topics and tips are discussed. New members will receive a free fern at their first meeting.
