Sponsoring Organization: Maryland Native Plant Society
The Smithsonian Environmental Research Center is the ideal place to demonstrate the effects of non-native earthworms on forest soils because there are places both with and without these earthworms there.
Leaders: Katalin Szlavecz and her graduate student Chih-Han Chang
Notes: The trails are easy walking trails. There are some nice outdoor places to have lunch. There are other trails you can walk on your own after lunch if you wish. Also, you are welcome to stay for a talk by Chih-Han Chang which is at 3:00 pm.
Cancellation Policy: Light drizzle is fine but cancelled if heavy rain.
Directions: included in registration confirmation.
