On Wednesday, May 16th, we will be traveling to Meadowview Biological Research Station south of Fredericksburg to visit a site dedicated to the preservation and restoration of rare wetland plants, habitats and associated ecosystems on the coastal plain of Maryland and Virginia. Meadowview’s particular area of specialization is the endangered habitats of bogs and seepage wetlands that contain pitcher plants. We will have a presentation by Dr. Phil Sheridan, the founder and a director of Meadowview and a driving force for longleaf pine and pitcher plant preservation in Virginia. There will be a minimal amount of walking but bring a camera. There should be opportunity to purchase plants and related items.
We will meet at 10 am at Meadowview which is located at 8390 Fredericksburg Turnpike, Woodford, VA 22580. It is about 80 miles north of Kilmarnock. For more information or car pooling, contact Kevin Howe at 571-232-4592.
