Title: MNPS Field Trip: Ferns on the Gunpowder
Leader: Dwight Johnson
Learn to identify some common and less common ferns along the Gunpowder River just north of Perry Hall. We should see close to twenty species. We will explore three different areas that are located along two paths that are about one mile each. Both paths are flat easy walking with a few small stream crossings but could be muddy if there was recent rain.
Directions: We will meet at the large parking lot on the east side of US Rt. 1 (Belair Rd) at the Gunpowder River 5.4 miles north of Interstate 695 (Baltimore Beltway) Exit 32.
