MNPS Field Trip: Exploring Elk Ridge in Winter
Leaders: Liz McDowell & Ron Boyer
Elk Ridge Native Plant Preserve
10:00 am to noon

This is the first in a series of field trips exploring the Elk Ridge Native Plant Preserve through the seasons. This forested ridge lies within the Mid-Atlantic Highlands, the largest interior hardwood forest in the world's temperate latitudes. Landowner efforts to preserve regional biodiversity have helped protect several uncommon plants and animals on this conserved land adjacent to the Savage River State Forest. The focus of this walk will be on evergreen herbs, shrubs and trees, along with easy winter weed and tree identification. A species list will be recorded and shared with participants. Depending on snow cover, cross country skis or snowshoes may be the preferred footwear.

Sorry, no pets are allowed and no rest rooms are available.

Directions will be sent to registrants.

Registration is required but is not available through this website. To register: contact Liz McDowell,

MNPS members and members of other native plant societies (VNPS, PNPS, or WVNPS) have “first dibs” to sign-up.
