MNPS Field Trip: Early Spring Walk in the Woods: Cabin John Regional Park at Locust Grove Nature Center (Friday)

  • Locust Grove Nature Center, southern Montgomery County, MD, near Montgomery Mall

Sponsoring Organization: Maryland Native Plant Society and Montgomery Parks 

We will hike about one-half mile at a slow pace on natural surface trails near Locust Grove Nature Center in Rock Creek Regional Park. This area has both upland and riparian woodlands. The focus will be on plants, but we will be on the lookout for anything else of interest (e.g., birds, mushrooms, reptiles, amphibians, animal sign) and encourage participants to share their knowledge. For ages 18 and up.

Leaders: Ken Bawer (Maryland Native Plant Society)
