Sponsoring Organization: Maryland Native Plant Society
Description: Join us in the beautiful Catoctin Mountains of Frederick County to see the property of Kai Hagen, adjacent to Thorpewood Mountain Retreat. With many types of habitats--well-drained slopes, seeps and wetlands, streams, meadows and a beaver pond--the area has a splendid variety of species in both forest and marginal ecosystems. If we are blessed with recent rain, the diversity of mushrooms is unmatched, so bring your fungal field guides!
Leaders: Marney Bruce and Bethany Dellagnello
