We'll join Greenbelt Biota in exploring a small but interesting park in Greenbelt, Maryland. Greenbrier Park is a 7 acre forested park tucked among suburban development. Greenbelt Biota has explored this park several times, and found an interesting mixture of plants. Swamp azalea grows near bracken fern and chinquapin, black birch grows near sweetbay magnolia, and pink lady slippers adorn a small picnic area. If time allows we can also explore an adjacent parcel with a more typical oak heath forest.

Leaders: Damien Ossi and Robinne Gray
