Originally designed by the Olmsted Brothers in 1904, Herring Run Park follows ~2.5 miles of the course of Herring Run creek between Lake Montebello / Morgan State University and I-895 in Baltimore. It is a great area for learning stream-side plants and animals and urban ecology. We will begin at the historic Halls Spring and work our way down the path along Herring run. 

This walk is primarily intended for beginning and intermediate level naturalists.

Leader:  Brett McMillan, MNPS Board member

ONLINE REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED. Limited to 10 for each sponsoring organization.

FREE 

Notes:   This is an easy walk with paved or gravel paths over level ground. Some of the paths are being repaired and so there may be mud or uneven ground. Restrooms are available at the parking area. 

Bring: Water and a snack if desired. Dress should be appropriate to the weather. Any of your favorite guidebooks are also fine to bring.

Cancellation Policy: The walk will proceed in the case of drizzle or intermittent light rain. An email will be sent no less than an hour before the hike if conditions warrant canceling the walk.
