Sponsoring Organization: Maryland Native Plant Society 

DescriptionJoin us in the beautiful Catoctin Mountains of Frederick County to see the property of Kai Hagen, adjacent to Thorpewood Mountain Retreat. With many types of habitats--well-drained slopes, seeps and wetlands, streams, meadows and a beaver pond--the area has a splendid variety of species in both forest and marginal ecosystems. If we are blessed with recent rain, the diversity of mushrooms is unmatched, so bring your fungal field guides! 

Leaders: Marney Bruce and Bethany Dellagnello 


Registration limited to MNPS members only through September 9.

Notes: Trails are fairly flat but cross streams and could be muddy. Boots would be good. Don't count on bathrooms!

Bring: Field guides, walking stick, water, snack, binoculars if you like, sun or rain protection.

Cancellation Policy:  We will go in drizzle or light rain, but the trip will be cancelled in the event of heavy rain or storms.

Contact: (for additional information, not to register)  Marney Bruce,, 301-652-0492

Directions: included in registration confirmation.
