Registration is closed

Join us for a citizen science and plant ID walk on the Purdum trail at Little Bennett Regional Park, in the Urbana quad of the MD Plant Atlas.  This quad has relatively few iNaturalist entries for fairly common plants.  We will add to the Atlas while practicing our ID skills on trees as well as herbaceous plants in flower.

For those who are unfamiliar - the MD Plant Atlas endeavors to provide authoritative distribution maps for all the native and naturalized plants of Maryland based on the best available data; to provide accurate and up-to-date information on the flora to the public; and to promote conservation and research by increasing awareness and appreciation for wild plants.  

iNaturalist observations will automatically be uploaded to the Atlas.
