MNPS Field Trip: Ferns on the Gunpowder

  • 07/09/2017
  • 10:00 AM - 3:00 PM
  • Gunpowder State Park, Perry Hall


Registration is closed
Leader: Dwight Johnson

Learn to identify some common and less common ferns along the Gunpowder River just north of Perry Hall. We should see close to twenty fern species, plus other plants. We will explore three different areas that are located along two paths that are about one mile each. Both paths are flat easy walking with a few small and easy stream crossings that could be muddy if there was recent rain.

Bring: Lunch, water, field guides and hand lenses if you have them. 'Key to the Ferns of Maryland' is on the MNPS website,

Registration: Required. Limited to 18.
