    Bioblitz Howard County
    April 26, 2014


    Sponsored by Transition Howard County’s Ecosystem Landscaping Committee, The Howard County Department of Recreation and Parks and the Howard County Living Farm Heritage Museum

    Bioblitz is a survey of the biota in a particular place on a particular date.The survey provides base-line data about the biodiversity of an area, in this case a section of the Howard County Living Farm Heritage Museum, West Friendship, MD.

    We need leaders who can identify plants in the field, both native and non-native. Leaders will lead small teams into the field to identify and count plants.  If you are interested in participating, but do not want to lead a group, we also welcome your help. You may register as a leader or participant.

    Please register at http://www.transitionhoco.org.

    Questions can be directed to Ann Coren, Chairperson Ecosystem Landscaping Committee, Transitition Howard County at anncoren@hotmail.com.

    The relevance of the survey to Howard County residents is that we are experiencing rapid land use changes. Our forests long ago became farmland, and that farmland is now becoming suburban and urban development. This is either fragmenting or destroying what’s left of the native habitat. Thus native populations are in decline, including those that humans value: For instance the beauty of butterflies and dogwoods; bees, to pollinate our crops; snakes to eat the mice; bats to eat mosquitoes….

    One goal of the Bioblitz is to determine what lives here, and to use that data for land use management. Another goal is to educate people about biodiversity, landscaping to preserve it, and reducing habitat fragmentation. The site has lawn, farm fields, woods and stream to survey.

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. Spring wildflowers and members of the Rose family will be the focus during this easy to moderate walk along forested trails. A species list will be recorded and shared with participants.

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

The group was tasked with reporting on the current status and conservation needs of native plants and associated threats to their communities, as well as making recommendations to preserve this important resource. The Report details the richness of Maryland’s native flora, explores why certain native plants and their associated habitats have become scarce, and recommends steps to make a positive difference to their preservation. The Report can be downloaded from the MNPS or the DNR website.

    Title: The Decline of Orchid Populations in the Catoctin Mountains

    Speaker: Wes Knapp, Eastern Regional Ecologist, MD DNR

    Description:

    A forty year study (1968 to 2008) of the orchid populations of the Catoctin Mountains, Frederick County, Maryland reveals that 19 of 21 species of orchids have experienced a precipitous decline. Four of these species are currently considered Threatened or Endangered by the State of Maryland and another two are considered Rare. Proper management is critical for the continuation of the orchid species in this study, be it control of the white-tailed deer herd or combating woody plant succession.

    Amelanchier (Shadbush) of the Potomac Gorge: Taxonomic and Evolutionary Complexity

    Speaker: Christopher Frye, Maryland State Botanist, DNR Wildlife and Heritage Service

    Description: Fernald remarked that "no genus in North America, except of course Rubus and Crataegus, has offered so much perplexity ... as Amelanchier."  The Potomac Gorge is home to several Amelanchiers that illustrate the complex evolutionary relationships within the genus. Chris will explain how recent evidence provides insights into the diversity of Amelanchier at this site.

    Chris Frye has been studying this fascinating genus of the Rose Family for 10 years. He is a member of the Amelanchier systematics group that published the treatment of the genus for the Flora of North America.

    • Elk Ridge Native Plant Preserve

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

    This is the second 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. Summer wildflowers and members of the Rose family will be the focus during this easy to moderate walk along forested trails. A species list will be recorded and shared with participants.

    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, lmcdnativeplants@hughes.net.

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