Ferns and Clubmosses

Overview

Ferns are protected plants in the ACT. Under no circumstances should they be disturbed. Ferns live in very specific environmental niches, and will nearly always die quickly if transplanted. Photograph them and leave them in the wild for others to enjoy. David Nicholls
