Registration is closed

Sponsoring Organization: Maryland Native Plant Society

Join us for a two mile there-and-back hike along the southern end of the Cabin John Trail in search of the very first springtime flowers:  Dutchman's breeches, bloodroot, trout lily, early saxifrage, and maybe more.

Leaders: Elizabeth Miller and Anne DeNovo


Registration limited to members only.  

Notes:  This will be a hike, not a meander. We won't be stopping to look at every single green thing; rather, we'll walk at a moderate pace in search of blooming flowers.  Parts of the trail are steep and rocky and may be wet and muddy.

Bring: Good footwear and layers of clothing, guidebooks, camera, water and snacks.  A walking stick or hiking poles if you use them.

Cancellation Policy:  We will cancel if it is raining more than a light drizzle. Contact leader if in doubt about the weather.  Phone number will be provided to registered participants.

Contact: (for additional information; not to register)  Elizabeth Miller, 

Directions: Will be included in registration confirmation.
