Want to Be a Trip Leader?

We are always looking for volunteers to host field trips. A Field Trip Host does not need to be a plant identification expert. The Host finds interesting locations and knows where to park and where the trails lead. Then the participants bring their knowledge. They may know plants, butterflies, birds, or rocks. The trip ends up being an adventure and learning experience for everyone. If you have a favorite place you would like to share with others, please contact fieldtrips @ mdflora.org. We'll help you set it up. Consider using this form to submit information for an event

Volunteer to Collect Plant Information on Field Trips

We create and publish lists of plants observed at various field trip sites. You can download and print them and take them with you. The number of lists will grow steadily, so be patient if you don't see one for your site now. You can find them at Field Trip Plant Lists.

Volunteers are needed to help create these plant lists. See our Volunteer page for more information.

    • Howard County Living Farm Heritage Museum, West Friendship, MD
    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.
