The Allegheny Plateau and Ridge & Valley regions of Maryland harbor many unique natural communities and rare, threatened, and endangered plants. Human threats include forest fragmentation and non-native invasive species as a result of timber harvesting, housing development, and energy development including coal mining, industrial wind energy development, and natural gas extraction. In 2013 we will explore the unique flora and efforts to mitigate the impacts of land use change in Maryland’s mountain region.
