MNPS Field Trip: Rare Plant at Black Hill Regional Park, Montgomery County

  • 05/16/2010
  • 2:00 PM
  • Black Hill Regional Park, Montgomery County, MD

We should see the Three Tooth Cinquefoil (Potentilla tridentata) in flower. It is listed in Herbaceous Plants of MD for Prince George's and Montgomery Counties. Flora of WV lists it from 4 counties on "exposed summits at high elevations". It appears to be a part of MD flora but isn't on the rare list.

Leader: Joe Metzger

Directions: Take I 270 to Clarksburg exit (MD 121, just north of Germantown exits). Go left and drive several miles to Old Baltimore Road. Turn left onto Old Baltimore Road and go about a mile to the entrance road of Black Hills Regional Park. Follow the entrance road about a mile to the Visitors' Center. We'll meet in front of the Visitors' Center.

Note: Easy to moderate walk.

Alternate Meeting Time and Place: Great Falls, VA in the courtyard of the Visitors' Center at 10:00 am for the monthly walk.
