Finzel Swamp 

Leaders: Rod Simmons and Local Guide TBD

The Nature Conservancy’s Finzel Swamp is a biodiversity treasure chest containing more than 30 rare and uncommon species, and five 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.

Easy to moderate walk 

Registration is restricted to the fall conference attendees. You can select this field trip when you register for the conference.
