The North Tract of the Greenbelt Forest Preserve is a 100 acre parcel of the forest that once surrounded the City of Greenbelt. This woodland holds remnant pine barren communities--globally-rare communities which are considered ancient outliers of New Jersey Pine Barrens. We’ll hike up Blueberry Hill to view the Oak-Heath-Pine Forest and look for extensive stands of various ericads, as well as Chinquapin, Dwarf Chinquapin Oak, Pitch Pine, and view a few rare acidic seepage communities which are considered ancient outliers of New Jersey Pine Barrens.

Registration is restricted to the fall conference attendees. Directions will be provided at the conference. Transportation is by private vehicles.
