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. 

Leaders: Keith Sanderson and Marney Bruce

ONLINE REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED. Limited to 20.

Registration through April 13 for members only.

FREE

Notes:  Easy, flat walk, not wet, although briars and thorns on low bushes (Himalayan Blackberry, Multiflora Rose) may catch your clothing.

Bring: water, lunch or a snack; binoculars and field guides are suggested. Tick and similar insect repellant advised.

Cancellation Policy: Light rain is fine but canceled in the case of heavy rain or thunderstorms. You will be notified by email before 9:00 AM if the trip has to be canceled due to weather. Please be sure to check your email before leaving the house.
