Sponsoring Organization: Maryland Native Plant Society and Montgomery Parks 

Migrating birds, Virginia Bluebells, squirming tadpoles, and budding trees -- springtime in Maryland is a time of rejuvenation and welcome returns. On our leisurely hikes through some of the county's most pristine parklands we'll take time to appreciate the wonders of the season while expanding our understanding of their ecology and interactions. Expect to cover 2-3 miles on natural surface trails.

NOTE: This is not strictly a plant trip and may touch on natural history, cultural history, plants, animals, geology, and whatever information participants can share!

Leaders: Ken Bawer (MNPS)and Geri Drymalski (Montgomery Parks Naturalist)
