Leader: Wayne Longbottom
Fishing Bay has been referred to as "The Everglades of Maryland". It is a vast expanse of salt marsh covering much of southern Dorchester Co. The biodiversity is not very high due to the harsh environment, but special adaptations allow the plants that do grow there to thrive. We will see and learn five of the most common plants in the salt marsh. Three species of Cordgrass (Spartina) Black Needle Rush and Salt Grass. We will also see perennial and annual salt marsh asters and other salt marsh specialists.
Start and end times are subject to change. Final details will be available at the conference.
Registration is restricted to the fall conference attendees. You can select this field trip when you register for the conference.
