Sponsoring Organization: Maryland Native Plant Society

We will visit a new location for MNPS, looking for spring ephemerals in a wooded ravine in an upper Montgomery County park. If there is time, we will look at the trees along the beginning of the Diabase Trail and perhaps we will be lucky enough to catch budbreak.  This area is threatened by ailanthus and other non-native invasives but we will inventory and explore it while we can.

Leaders:  Anne DeNovo and Marney Bruce
