Sponsoring Organization: Maryland Native Plant Society
Vacant lots in this area have been planted with seed mixes of primarily native wildflowers and warm-season bunch grasses. We will discuss what grows in these environments without direct human intervention as well as what we are attempting to alter through our treatments. We will also discuss the process to establish this project, the progress made, and more generally, the use of vacant lots and other urban brownfields as habitat restoration and conservation areas for native plants.
