    National Park California

Ferns

The dry climate of Pinnacles may seem like an unlikely place for ferns to grow. During the summer months, deep canyons provide shade for moisture-loving species, such as maidenhair and horsetail ferns. Other species, such as the bird's-foot and coffee ferns, tolerate dry conditions.
