Cheverly Nature Hike: Forest and Grassy Glade Restoration
On this walk we will observe the diversity of trees, shrubs and plants recovering due to restoration work by the Cheverly Green Infrastructure Science Committee. Removal of invasive plants has allowed many native species to return. We will learn about specific restoration strategies for forest and an open grassy glade, what has worked and why. For more information and directions, go to No pre-registration required.

What we're about

The mission of the Maryland Native Plant Society ( (MNPS) is to promote awareness, appreciation, and conservation of Maryland's native plants and their habitats. We pursue our mission through education, research, advocacy, and service activities.

On this meetup page, we post our monthly programs as well as some of our field trips. Both are open to non-MNPS members but we invite you to become a member of MNPS ( for $25 ($15 students/seniors). As a member, not only are you supporting our mission but you will also be notified about all of our field trips, not just the ones posted to meetup.

The purpose of our walks is to identify plants. We tend to stop frequently, looking closely at plants and don't cover lot of ground (we're not a hiking group). No botany expertise is required. Walks are generally led by someone who has at least basic experience identifying plants and many are led by botanists with many years of field experience. Our monthly program is held on the last Tuesday of each month and features a presentation on a topic related to native plants.
