Sponsored by: Maryland Native Plant Society 

Leader: Jim Brighton, co-founder of the Maryland Biodiversity Project

Maryland’s coastal plain harbors many species not seen in the piedmont or mountains, including milkweeds. On this trip, we will first visit a brackish marsh to see unusual plants, then proceed for some interesting roadside botany. “So much good stuff it is hard to list.” We will stop along the way to eat our packed lunches. For those who want to continue, we will head for Brookview Swamp. Leader Jim Brighton has explored extensively in this area.

Free. ONLINE REGISTRATION IS  REQUIRED. Limited to 15 people. Registration through June 12 is for members only.

Notes: We will not walk great distances. Waders are not necessary for viewing many plants, but don't assume your feet will stay dry.

Bring: Waders if you have them, lunch, water, your favorite ID books or apps, insect repellent, sunscreen, hat.

Cancellation Policy: Cancel for heavy rain. Light rain OK. Registrants will be notified of cancellation no later than 9 PM the night before.
