What's this plant?
Learn to identify plants in an informal setting with other inquisitive people and a botanist who can answer your questions. Bring a plant or twig from your own backyard. Or look at one from an ongoing inventory of the Baltimore County Ag Center. All experience levels are welcome. We’ll have botany books, hand lenses, dried plant specimens, and a microscope available for you to use. Cost: Members of the Natural History Society of Maryland - $15 for both sessions this month, paid at the first session. Individual sessions for non-members and members - $10. Pay cash or check at the door. Become a member at www.marylandnature.org (http://www.marylandnature.org/) (individual $25; family $35). Leaders: The sessions will be facilitated by Charlie Davis and Judy Fulton. Charlie is a professional field ecologist who specializes in plants. Judy is a Master Gardener who is conducting a plant inventory at the Baltimore County Center for MD Agricultural and Farm Park. Both Charlie and Judy are volunteers, so your money for these sessions will go directly to support the programs, the nature collections, and the building that make this kind of nature education possible.

What we're about

Public Group

Join the Natural History Society of Maryland to meet other nature lovers, outdoor enthusiasts, naturalists, and similarly inquisitive minds. We offer a wide variety of programs for the beginner to the advanced naturalist, and from informal social events to in-depth courses.

Everyone is welcome, but membership offers many free programs and discounts on others. So join us in a search for reptiles and amphibians, a canoe trip on the Chesapeake Bay, or to learn everything there is to know about Maryland dragonflies - it's up to you!

The mission of the Natural History Society of Maryland is to foster stewardship of Maryland's natural heritage by conserving its natural history collections, educating its citizenry, and inspiring its youth to pursue careers in the natural sciences.

The Natural History Society of Maryland (NHSM) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation founded in 1929. Its extensive collections of Maryland flora, fauna, fossils, and minerals, dating back to the early 1800's, are a rare and valuable asset to the State of Maryland. Help us build The Maryland Naturalist Center.
