The Nature Conservancy’s Finzel Swamp is a biodiversity treasure chest containing rare and uncommon species, as well as globally and locally significant wetland habitat types. This remnant boreal fen has been left behind from the Pleistocene Epoch and is one of the few remaining refuges in Maryland where boreal species have persisted since the last Ice Age.
To minimize impacts to this fragile area the group size is limited, so RESERVATIONS ARE REQUIRED. Participants should bring trail shoes, water, tick spray, and sunscreen. No pets are allowed and no rest rooms are available. In case of severe weather this field trip will be cancelled.
For more details and/or to reserve your space, please email Liz McDowell, Chapter Coordinator, directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
