Editorial Reviews


A rich and welcome resource for everyone who enjoys wildflowers—casual walker and dedicated student alike... Finding Wildflowers describes dozens of parks, preserves, and other sites within about a hundred miles of the Baltimore-Washington corridor. And it goes well beyond simple description, placing these sites in the context of the region's natural environment, and providing a detailed checklist of species the visitor may see.

(Mary Pockman Audubon Naturalist News)

A trio of authors (two from the Audubon Society) deliver loads of information about plant life and geology, as well as outlining scores of trails and sites to visit in natural areas... Includes a month-by-month guide to blooming seasons for a variety of plants.

Format: Paperback
This book is a neccesity for anyone looking for fantastic wild flower sites within driving distance of the D.C./Baltimore area. It is co-written by Chris Fleming, field botanist with the Maryland Natural Heritage Program and popular teacher of Wild Flower I.D. at the Audubon Naturalist Society in Chevy Chase, MD. Each site is described by the wildflowers you can expect to see in every season and directions are given as well as any info needed about gaining access to the site. Learn where to see one of the largest stands of Giant-flowered trillium (Trillium grandiflorum) you will ever see or visit the only known site in Maryland to observe the beautiful Fringed Gentian (Gentiana crinita). This book will keep you busy for many weekends of wild flower exploration.
