Welcome to the Seward Park Audubon Center's self-guided tour series! Let these routes serve as introductions to deeper exploration and awareness of the natural world. Feel free to bring a field guide if you would like to go into finer detail. Several unique species of ferns have been noted. We invite you to appreciate the absolute abundance of ferns!
HOW TO USE: Start counter-clockwise. Tap the first pin to get directions and press "START." Once arrived, tap the lower bar, or "more info" button. Get to know the plant. Continue hiking by tapping the next pin along the route and enabling directions. REMEMBER there are more plants than we could pin! Enjoy yourself and try to recognize the variety of ferns as you continue along the route.
