Registration is closed

Sponsoring Organization: Maryland Native Plant Society

Leader: Carole Bergmann

Join former Montgomery Parks Forest Ecologist, Carole Bergmann, for an early autumn hike in Little Bennett Regional Park. We will walk through a meadow and upland and floodplain forest, and talk about the trees, shrubs, wildflowers, ferns, and seedpods along the way.

The Wilson's Mill trail has been re-routed to pass through a different section of forest, with a new bridge so there is no longer a potentially wet stream crossing.

ONLINE REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED.  Registration for MNPS members opens September 1; registration for the public opens Sept 10

ONLINE REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED. Limited to 10. Ages 16 and up, please.

Notes: There are no restrooms on site. Dress for the weather and wear hiking shoes. Easy to moderate walk.

Bring: Water and a snack.

Cancellation Policy: If it is raining or rain is imminent, we will cancel. If unsure, contact Carole.

Contact: (for additional information; not to register) Carole Bergmann, 301-651-0646.

Directions: included in registration confirmation.
