Winter Greens: Identification of plants that are green in the winter.

For ages 16 years through adult

Learn to identify some of our evergreen plants. 2016 is MNPS Year of the Conifer, so we'll look for the common, and uncommon species. We’ll explore the forests in search of the ferns, herbaceous plants, and other trees that are green in the winter. 

Co-sponsored by the  Calvert Nature Society and Calvert County Division of Natural Resources

Leader: Karyn Molines

Wear warm clothes for standing around outside (we won't be moving very fast)

There are port-a-pots on site. Modern facilities are located at Battle Creek Cypress Swamp, 1/2 mile from the site. Please adjust your travel time accordingly.

Bring (optional, but useful) a 10x hand lens, binoculars, field guides.

Register through the CNS web site.   No fee for MNPS or CNS members. $8 per person fee for nonmembers of either group.
