Sponsoring Organization: Maryland Native Plant Society

Leaders:  Anne DeNovo and Marney Bruce


MNPS membership not required.

Bring: Binoculars, field guides, camera if you like.  Walking poles if you use them. Good boots or shoes and dress for winter weather.

Notes: We will walk about 1.5-2 miles on natural surface trails that will probably be muddy. Some uphill and downhill walking.

Cancellation Policy: We will cancel in the event of rain, ice or snow. If in doubt about the weather, contact the leader, Anne DeNovo,
