My name is Evan H Gregg and I really love Western Mass. I've aways spent a lot of time telling people about the awesome people, places, and things that make up our region. If I'm not cajoling out of town friends to visit I'm telling other locals about hidden gems they didn't know were in their backyard.
So, rather than just annoying my friends and neighbors I started this website. I hope you find it useful and entertaining and that I do my homeland justice.
About the Fern
I’ve always thought the fern was under appreciated when it comes to New England flora.
You hear a lot of about fiddleheads because they’re delicious but once those ferns bloom people seem to forget about them.
When you think of fall color you think of leaves but ferns also change with the seasons.
Mostly I like the interconnectedness of the fern. Not just the fronds but they way they grow together in groups. My goal is to foster the same level of connection between the people who make Western Mass what it is.
