Sponsoring Organization: Maryland Native Plant Society

Leader: Dwight Johnson

Spring is a time of change. This is the second of two walks along the same trail three weeks apart. There is no requirement to attend both walks. We will make plant lists for both walks and compare them to assess the changes. Both plant lists will be posted to the MNPS website. This trail along the Gunpowder River has a good assortment of ferns and wildflowers including Nodding Trillium, Miterwort, and Greek Valerian.

Bring all the usual stuff: lunch and water, plus field guides, binoculars and magnifying glasses if you have them.

You can buy lunch at Graul’s Supermarket located in the shopping center on Mt. Carmel Road just east of the exit from Interstate 83.

Easy to moderate walk. Cancel in the event of heavy rain.

IS REQUIRED. Limited to 16

Registration through April 21 is for members only.
