MNPS Field Trip: Nature Hike & GBBC- Cheverly Nature Park (Saturday)

  • 02/13/2016
  • 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM
  • Cheverly, MD

Sponsoring Organization: MNPS and The Cheverly Green Infrastructure Committee

Leader: Matt Salo 

The PG/AA Chapter of the Maryland Native Plant Society and The Cheverly Green Infrastructure Science Committee are co-sponsoring nature hikes, coupled with the Great Backyard Bird Count of local birds, on four days (Friday through Monday) from February 12th to the 15th. Two public hikes are planned for Saturday and Sunday, February 13th and 14th at the Nature Park and Woodworth Park, respectively. Both hikes will be guided by experienced bird watchers. We will also be identifying trees and whatever plants we come across. This is a great chance to get out, learn about birds and enjoy what nature has to offer this time of the year.

Directions: Approach Cheverly from either south or north on B-W Parkway; take the exit for Cheverly onto Rte 202 (Landover Rd), head east a few hundred feet and turn right onto Cheverly Ave heading south. Continue for six blocks to Forest Rd, after a small park on your left; from there follow specific directions below.

Cheverly Nature Park, near 3398 Tremont Ave., Cheverly, MD.  [Address is for GPS orientation only; owners are not associated with the hike]. For the Sunday hike turn right on Forest Rd and continue three blocks until the road splits; stay to the right and continue straight ahead for two more blocks passing Crest and then turn right on Tremont Ave; go to its end and park on street.

Bring:  Binoculars.  Field guides and snacks optional.  Dress for the weather.

Notes:  Fairly easy walking on good trails, but there are some slopes to climb.

Cancellation Policy:  May be cancelled for heavy rain, wind or other inclement weather. Call 301-341-1261, if in doubt.

Registration is not required.
