Speaker: Brett McMillan
Pimple Dunes are curiously circular in footprint versus elongated likemost dunes and seem to be peculiar to the barrier islands off the Eastern Shore. Although only a few hundred square feet in area, they can support a very diverse community of plants. I'll present a description of these communities along with a slideshow of some of the interesting plants there.
Location: Kensington Library. PLEASE NOTE NEW LOCATION. Starting in July, 2011, monthly meetings will be at the Kensington Library until further notice.
Directions: From the Washington Beltway (I-495)
Take Connecticut Avenue north to the third signal after the Beltway. Turn left onto Knowles and go 2 1/2 blocks to the library on the right.
