Registration


Registration is closed

Sponsoring Organization:  Maryland Native Plant Society

Description:  Participants will walk through a variety of habitats including a forest, meadow and wetlands. Watch and possibly tag the monarch butterflies as they visit the meadow en route to Mexico for the winter. There will be time for a picnic at the pavilion/living classroom as we discuss plans for planting four raised demonstration beds. Participants will find it hard to believe the area was formerly a landfill. Working with students and local volunteers, Jeff Popp, the land restoration manager, has turned it into a wildlife refuge that you won't want to miss.

Outing will end around sunset.

Location: New Beginnings- The Woodlawn Wildlife Area, Port Deposit, Cecil County

Leader:  Jeff Popp, Land Restoration Manager

Registration is required.  Limited to 15.
