John Parrish, botanist and USDA Graduate School plant ID instructor, will give a presentation on many of the native evergreen plants found throughout Maryland, including pines and other gymnosperms, hollies, bayberries, and other shrubs, groundcovers and clubmosses, and numerous others. Live material will be used, with an emphasis on identification. John will also discuss the natural distribution and habitat of each species.
