Sponsoring Organization: Williams, Powell, Clark and Stoney Valleys Botanical Society
We will investigate seeps on the flanks of South Mountain in
Cumberland Co, PA. Some of these seeps reportedly have Sweetbay
Magnolia (Magnolia virginiana). One purpose will be to compare these
seeps to those of the fall line region in Maryland. I hope Sweetbay
will be in bloom. WARNING: As of the preparation of this
announcement, I have not visited these locations, so some stumbling
around may transpire on June 5th. This trip is co-sponsored by
Williams, Powell, Clark and Stoney Valleys Botanical Society (WPCSV
