The Chesapeake Bay region is sustained by native plants that provide food and shelter to wildlife and enhance the rich biodiversity of the Bay watershed. Join naturalist Nick Carter on October 17 for a walk along the paths that bisect the rich and unique native plant habitat of Adkins Arboretum, all outstanding specimens of plants native to the Delmarva Peninsula. The walk begins at 6 p.m. and is free for members, free with admission for non-members.
A longtime environmental educator, Carter retired as fisheries biologist and ecologist with Maryland Department of Natural Resources after 35 years. He has received the Izaak Walton League’s award for habitat conservation in the Chesapeake Bay region and a Governor’s citation for excellence.
