MNPS Meeting: "Spring Flowering Native Plants of Maryland"

  • 03/27/2007
  • 7:30 PM
  • White Oak Library

MNPS offers this lecture each year in spring, as a celebration of the season but also to give new members an introduction to spring-flowering native plants and places to see them in the wild.  Join botanist Rod Simmons for a presentation on many of the common and rare, spring-flowering native plants of Maryland. Spring ephemerals – plants of early spring which bloom and largely disappear before the forest canopy substantially leafs out – will be the main focus, although other spring wildflowers will be included as well.  Plant identification, habitats and natural communities, and places in Maryland to see them will also be discussed.

There will be a Fall Conference planning meeting before the monthly meeting at 6:30pm. Volunteers are welcome!

Location: White Oak Library - Large Meeting Room

Directions: Exit the Washington Beltway at New Hampshire Ave (exit 28). Go north about 2 miles. The library is the first building on the right, once you have passed under Route 29, just after 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.
