Upcoming events

    • 05/07/2016
    • 10:00 AM - 1:00 PM
    • Rachel Carson Conservation Park, Montgomery County
    • 4

    Sponsoring Organization: Maryland Native Plant Society

    If we are lucky, Rachel Carson's famous wild azaleas (pinxters) will be in full bloom.  We'll see what is going on inside some of the five deer exclosures and walk along the Hawlings River. The terrain includes meadows, rocky hilltops, and bottomland; so we'll see a variety of spring flowers, ferns, birds and insects.  A lovely picnic spot is included, so bring a picnic lunch.  The walking distance will be almost 2 miles.  

    Leader:  Steve Parks
    Dr. Parks has taken on stewardship duties at the park, erecting and maintaining deer protection for some areas and plants, and suppressing some invasive species.  He knows some of the native species at RCCP, and trusts that participants in the walk will help identify the rest.

    ONLINE REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED. Limited to 18.

    Registration through April 14 for members only.

    FREE 

    Notes:   Most of the trail is well graded but we will encounter some muddy patches, and a few raised roots across the trail.

    For a trail map of the park, download it from:  http://www.montgomeryparks.org/PPSD/ParkTrails/trails_MAPS/Rachel_Carson.shtm

    Bring: Bring a picnic, skeeter repellent, and wear mud shoes. Binoculars and loupe may be handy.

    Cancellation Policy: Cancelled if severe rainy weather.

    Directions:  Will be sent in registration confirmation.

    FIELD TRIP CANCELED DUE TO WET GROUND and INABILITY TO ACCESS PRIMARY SITE.

    Sponsoring Organization: Maryland Native Plant Society

    Join us for a walk in Little Bennett Park, the largest park (3700 acres) in Montgomery County, to see another of its many fascinating natural features. We will visit the National Co-Champion native Spicebush, found by MNPS member Keith Sanderson, and visit two forest restoration sites along a tributary of Little Bennett Creek. Emphasis will be on identifying the native plants the M-NCPPC staff are attempting to save from deer damage, and the invasive plants that also contribute to their demise. 

    Leaders: Keith Sanderson and Marney Bruce

    ONLINE REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED. Limited to 20.

    Registration through April 13 for members only.

    FREE

    Notes:  Easy, flat walk, not wet, although briars and thorns on low bushes (Himalayan Blackberry, Multiflora Rose) may catch your clothing.

    Cancellation Policy: Light rain is fine but canceled in the case of heavy rain or thunderstorms. You will be notified by email before 9:00 AM if the trip has to be canceled due to weather. Please be sure to check your email before leaving the house.

    Leader has encountered only one tick, but tick populations change each year and there are many deer.  Please take precautions for ticks.

    • 10:00 AM - 2:00 PM
    • SE Washington DC

    Sponsoring Organization: Maryland Native Plant Society

    143rd walk in the Wild Washington- Forts series

    We will return, after many years, to Oxon Run Bog.  Though not a Civil War Fort this is a magnolia bog below a terrace gravel formation (like the upland Fort sites)
    “Acidic and mossy seeps, magnolia bogs occur only below gravel terraces of the inner mid-Atlantic Coastal Plain. Closely associated with terrace gravel forests, these wetlands usually occupy less than an acre on slopes comprised of soils deposited millions of years ago by the Potomac River. Water infiltration and leaching has left the soils acidic and free of the organic materials that characterize true peat bogs. When water percolates from the upland sands and gravels over an impervious layer of clay, downward flow is prevented, and moisture is directed out of the hillside. This hydro-geology creates optimal conditions for bog formation.” National Park Service

    Leaders: Mary Pat Rowan and David Culp with Jim Rosenstock, formerly with the National Park Service.

    REGISTRATION IS NOT REQUIRED

    FREE

    Notes: Uneven and wet ground.

    Bring: Lunch and water.  Wear appropriate shoes and clothing. 

    Cancellation Policy:
     Cancelled if raining, but call Mary Pat at 202-526-8821 Sunday morning before 9:00 AM if in doubt.

    Contact: (for additional information; not to register) Mary Pat Rowan, blair-rowan@starpower.net, 202-526-8821; or David Culp on his cell 202-415-1594.

    Directions: In Southeast Washington DC, we will meet on the upper parking deck of the Southern Avenue Metro Station which is on the Metro Green Line. If you drive, parking is abundant there and free on Sunday.

    • 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM
    • Elk Ridge Native Plant Preserve, Garret County, MD
    Field Trip: Exploring Elk Ridge in Summer
    Leaders: Liz McDowell & Ron Boyer, Western Mountains Chapter of MNPS

    This forested ridge in Garrett County lies within the Mid-Atlantic Highlands, the largest interior hardwood forest in the world's temperate latitudes. Landowner efforts to preserve regional biodiversity have helped protect several uncommon plants and animals on this conserved land adjacent to the Savage River State Forest. Conifers and wildflowers will be the focus during this easy to moderate walk along trails through forest and meadow. A species list will be recorded and shared with participants.

    Participants should wear trail shoes and carry their own water. Sorry, but no pets are allowed and no rest rooms are available. 

    Registration is required but is not available through this website. To register please contact Liz by email at lmcdnativeplants@hughes.net or phone at 301-895-3686.

    MNPS members and/or members of other native plant societies (VNPS, PNPS, or WVNPS) have “first dibs” to sign-up, so join your local native plant society today!
