FIELD TRIP CANCELED DUE TO WET GROUND and INABILITY TO ACCESS PRIMARY SITE.
Sponsoring Organization: Maryland Native Plant Society
Join us for a walk in Little Bennett Park, the largest park (3700 acres) in Montgomery County, to see another of its many fascinating natural features. We will visit the National Co-Champion native Spicebush, found by MNPS member Keith Sanderson, and visit two forest restoration sites along a tributary of Little Bennett Creek. Emphasis will be on identifying the native plants the M-NCPPC staff are attempting to save from deer damage, and the invasive plants that also contribute to their demise.
