Here is an email interaction between myself and Tim Storbeck <*

As you can see, he would like to hook up with someone for a fern outing (see
below). If you have an interest, please email Tim directly.
Thanks for the reply. I'm going to be in Maine the first three weeks of
August. Unfortunately, my wife has invited most of Philadelphia to join us!
So it looks like the only weekend I have available to do any botanizing will
be the 16th or 17th. I am most interested in seeing Ophioglossum,
Botrychium, and/or Cryptogramma. Judging from the UMaine online herbarium,
the most productive local areas may be around Buckfield, Sumner, and Paris.
Some collections are from the Jersey Bog, near East Buckfield. It sounds
interesting . . .any access to that?
My local phone is 998-5741. Thanks.
