Details
The diverse, sheltered habitats of the Susquehanna River watershed support a wealth of unique wildflowers and wildlife in the piedmont of upper Maryland. Explore this expansive display of spring ephemerals as you walk along a section of the Susquehanna and Tidewater Canal through drifts of Dutchman's breeches, Virginia bluebells, toothwort, creeping phlox, and an unusual trillium species. Learn about the plant ecology of this region, its historic mills, and the importance of preserving this landscape of exceptional flora for migrating birds and indigenous fauna.
Bring your lunch, binoculars if you have them, and wear sturdy shoes for an easy hike.
Karen Travers is a professional field biologist and educator who has led natural history field trips for more than 25 years. She is a docent at Mt. Cuba Center and the past President of the Pennsbury Land Trust.
