Join us for a walk along the Buck Lodge Loop trail through the scenic forest of mountain laurels, chestnut oaks, black gums and berries (Vaccinium, Rubus, Ilex, Lyonia, Photinia, etc.). This is our chance to catch an entire forest of mountain laurels in full bloom, some of the largest mountain laurels known in Prince George's County. Each plant we identify will be documented to add to the growing list of the flora of Buck Lodge.

Leaders: Marney Bruce and Michael Ellis

Notes:  There are no bathrooms at this location, but the walking is gentle and suitable for all ages. We will meet in the parking lot and will be staying mainly on the paved trails. Trails are mapped on Google maps: https://goo.gl/maps/HbUNcS4mcNR2
