Sponsoring Organization: Maryland Native Plant Society and Montgomery Parks
The winter months offer some of the best opportunities for nature observation whether you're searching for animal tracks, tree species, resident birds, or ice crystals. Enjoy the quiet and serenity of our winter forests as we explore our parks system's prime examples each month. Walks are on natural surface trails and usually 3 miles in length. We stop frequently to listen, watch and learn.
NOTE: This is not strictly a plant trip and may touch on natural history, cultural history, plants, animals, geology, and whatever information participants can share!
