This 1200-acre park complex overlies the Baltimore Gabbro Complex - a base-rich mafic rock that gives rise to floristically diverse plant communities and a high number of species. We will see several state-rare sedges, numerous grasses, a diversity of shrubs, understory, and canopy trees, many of which are massive in size, and several natural community types. We will also explore a mafic seepage swamp via boardwalk. This is a relatively unexplored area.
