MNPS Meeting: "Natural Grassland Communities in Maryland"

  • 09/28/2004
  • 6:00 PM
  • White Oak Library

Join Rod Simmons, plant ecologist, for a presentation on many of the natural grassland communities and habitats in Maryland, most of which are in prime bloom in late summer and early fall. Characteristic species will be discussed, both common and rare, from communities ranging from old successional fields to riverside prairies. Identification techniques, with an emphasis on asters, goldenrods, and grasses, will also be discussed. Members are encouraged to bring in samples of plants they may want identified.

Location: White Oak Library - Large Meeting Room

Driving Directions: Exit the Washington Beltway at New Hampshire Avenue (exit 28). Go north about 2 miles. The library is on the right soon after you have passed under Route 29. It is just past the Sears store.

There will be refreshments and door prizes. Pot luck refreshments are always welcome.

The meeting is open to non-members.

Meetings take place on the last Tuesday of each month.
