MNPS Program (Tuesday): O Where Are The Pines Of Piney Branch?

  • 7:30 PM
  • Kensington Library, Kensington, MD


Registration is closed

Speaker: Steve Dryden

Steve'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. Some of you were on his recent walk exploring the sites. Join us to enjoy his slides of this diverse section of the park - some wet spots, some dry; areas 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.  See Steve's article about Piney Branch and its history in the Spring 2018 issue of Marilandica.

Doors open at 7:00. At 7:30 there will be a very short Annual Meeting of the Maryland Native Plant Society, at which the results of the election of Directors and Officers for 2019 will be announced. Steve's presentation will follow immediately.

Location: Kensington Library, 4201 Knowles Ave, Kensington, MD.

The program is free and open to the public. Registration is not required.
