Join members of MNPS' Botany Committee (and maybe the Maryland Natural Heritage Program) for a presentation on the results of botanical surveys and field trips throughout the state and adjoining region over the past year. The presentation will include newly discovered species for Maryland by DNR and MNPS from the Eastern Shore and Patuxent area; surveys in the "sand belt" region of Anne Arundel County; a Magnolia Bog near Laurel; recent finds in southern Maryland; uncommon to rare species from Baltimore and Pennsylvania field trips; exploration along the upper C&O Canal; and surveys of the Nature Conservancy's North Cherry Creek Bog site and other places in Garrett County.
There will be a mailing party before the meeting, starting at 6:30pm. Volunteers are welcome - the more helping hands, the merrier!
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.
