Eastern Shore Chapter

The Eastern Shore Chapter partners with Adkins Arboretum for programs and field trips.

Adkins Arboretum is a 400-acre native garden and preserve in Caroline County on Maryland's Eastern Shore, dedicated to promoting the appreciation and conservation of the region's native plants. Five miles of paths along streams, through meadows and native plant gardens, and under the shade of a rich bottomland forest attract nature lovers, gardeners, students and birders. The Arboretum offers programs year-round in ecology, horticulture, and natural history for all ages. The site features over 600 species of native shrubs, trees, wildflowers, and grasses.

Adkins has a full calendar of events and activities. Please see their website for details.
