Beltsville Agricultural Research Center (BARC) protects some of the most rare biodiversity in the DC region. The BARC Pine Barrens comprises a southern extension of the range of this rare vegetation type. There are both upland and lowland Pine Barrens at BARC, the latter a wetland sandy soil plant community. We will also see a variety of trees, and the forest understory has remarkable diversity of heaths, ferns and other native plants.
