Sponsored by Maryland Native Plant Society.
Explore the diverse tidal wetlands of Jug Bay Wetlands Sanctuary in southern Anne Arundel County. July is hot when the marsh is in full bloom: we'll find swamp rose, cattail, wild rice, arrowhead, pickerelweed, and more! We'll also have the chance to identify several species in the milweed/dogbane family.
No need for boots--we'll be along a boardwalk which travel through low marsh, high marsh and swamp.
There is a $6 per vehicle entrance fee into the Sanctuary (cash or check only)
Leader: Karyn Molines
Online registration is recommended.
Bring: Water, field guides, hand lens, binoculars, hat, sunscreen. Bring a lunch for after the trip.
Fees: Entrance fee into the park. $6/vehicle
