Sponsoring Organization: Maryland Native Plant Society 

Description:  Steve Dryden's Rock Creek Songbirds project has focused on restoring habitat for migratory birds in Rock Creek's Piney Branch stream valley for the past five years. His walk will highlight the sites, some wet, some dry, where new trees and wildflowers/grasses have been planted, and spots of native diversity that have been protected, allowing a natural "re-greening" of the area. Steve will also speak about the Songbird outreach initiative aimed at the Latino community in the neighborhoods close to Piney Branch.
