    If mosses intrigue you when you hike but you wonder exactly what you are seeing, this is your chance to figure it out in a fun environment. On the last Saturday of each month, we'll take a closer look at a moss or two and work together to identify them. We'll introduce you to the vocabulary and work through moss keys together. A walk down your street will never be the same!

    Nature Connections: A Snow Show

    Have you ever wondered how photographers have been able to capture the delicate details of a snowflake?

    How about where snow comes from and how it’s formed?

    At this free Nature Connections we will be taking an in-depth look at snow and learning all about how Wilson “Snowflake” Bentley took his 1885 iconic snowflake photographs.  Martin Schmidt will demonstrate how snow forms in the atmosphere and grows into storms.  And in a special presentation, Kathy Hrechka will be showing us her approach of photographing snow with a process called photomicrography.

    There will also be a snowflake craft for kids of all ages and a special reading of Snowflake Bentley.

     

    Special Presentations:

    1:15 pm / Kathy Hrechka, will present The Art of Snow Crystal Photomicrography

    2:00 pm / Martin Schmidt, will feature a talk on low-pressure systems that can give us snowstorms

    2:30 pm / Linda Davis, will read children's book, Snowflake Bentley

     

    Natural History Society of Maryland hopes to see you there!

    Join us for a birding field trip at Fort Smallwood with Pete Givan! This place is a little out of the way, but a really great birding spot at the mouth of the Patapsco River. We hope to see a good assortment of songbirds and water birds.

    What to bring: Bring your field guides and binoculars. Dress for the weather—it will be the middle of March so the weather could be just about anything. Whatever the weather, the birding should be good!

    Carpooling is encouraged: Due to the park’s entrance fee ($6.00 or $5.00 for seniors) we encourage carpooling. Please email Emily at eglaeser@marylandnature.org and she can put you in contact with others who would like to carpool.

    About our leader: Mr. Givan began to take an interest in birding when he was growing up. His mother was an amateur birder and that affinity was passed on to him. He casually identified birds in his youth and then came college and the military where he moved away from that activity. It wasn't until his forties when he began birding again. In 1997 he began working for the Wild Bird Centers which focus on backyard birding. He took it a step further and began leading local bird walks. His birding circle which consists of around 60 people has birded not only locally, but along the Eastern Shore, Cape May, and Western Maryland. Now that Mr. Givan has retired from running a Wild Bird Center storefront he hopes to expand his birding areas to include many more states throughout the country.

    One of Mr. Givan’s goals while running his store was to get young folks interested in birding. One young man (Cameron) has birded with him for the last 5 years. He is now 17 and a birding phenom. Mr. Givan has sponsored him to go to a couple of birding summer camps to learn more about bird behavior and bird habitat which are just as  important in making a proper identification. Needless to say, Mr. Givan is a valuable asset to the birding community and we can’t wait to get out in the field with him!

    Mr. Givan, like most of the other people who lead NHSM field trips, is a volunteer, so your money will go directly to support the programs, the nature collections, and the building that make this kind of nature education possible.

    The Natural History Society of Maryland invites you to join us, along with Ecotone's Scott McGill, for National Beaver Day at Boordy Vineyards! Scott McGill is the Founder and CEO of Ecotone, Inc. a design-build ecological restoration company. Scott has over 27 years of applied experience in both design and construction of ecological restoration projects throughout the United States. His “less is more” approach to design and construction that incorporate conservation biology and adaptive management is widely accepted as an innovative model for sustainable cost-effective ecological restoration.

    In early 2018, the landowners of Boordy Vineyards contacted Ecotone after having problems with beaver flooding the road near their home.  The property sits on Long Green Creek and adjacent to the stream Ecotone had created 8.3 acres of wetlands. These wetlands provided the optimal location for a beaver dam, and a pair of beavers colonized the site. The beavers are actively enhancing the wetland habitat by flooding them and expanding the wetland areas, but the road flooding was a big issue that needed remediation. Ecotone installed several flow management devices in the beaver dam using a caged culvert pipe to maintain the water level behind the dam to limit flooding potential of the road while preserving the benefits the beaver provide to the wetlands. This is a cost effective alternative to trapping that retains ecological benefits while protecting any surrounding infrastructure.

    Come tour the beaver dam and wetlands, and see this amazing success story for yourself! Oh, and stay for wine tasting, food, and music!

    • 1:00 p.m. – Arrival, check-in
    • 1:15 p.m. – Short walk to site as a group
    • 1:30 p.m. –  Video presentation begins in barn near site
    • 2:00–3:00 p.m. – Site walk/tour
    • 3:00–5:00 p.m. – Wine tasting/happy hour (there will be food trucks and music for anyone interested in staying around to hang out)!

    Difficulty/what to wear/bring: Moderately strenuous due to walking in mud and water while touring the beaver dam. Waders or tall boots are STRONGLY ENCOURAGED! The chances are good that you will be getting wet! Dress for the weather and bring a change of clothes just in case.

    NOTE: Wine tasting and food are not included in registration costs and will be paid separately onsite at Boordy.

    Join National Park Ranger Bill Curtis on a guided hike exploring the ruins of the Northampton Iron Furnace, the 10th iron furnace erected in Maryland. The furnace was built by the Ridgely family, owners of what is now Hampton National Historic Site.  Powered by water, the furnace contributed to early America’s wealth and provided weapons in two wars. Bill will talk about the history of the furnace and its workers and will touch on transportation history in Baltimore County. He will also discuss the ways that Americans have exploited and changed our natural resources including stone, minerals, wood, and water.  Water was an especially important resource. It powered early industry and provided much-needed resources for industry and for life. While profiting from water, early Americans also changed how it flows to and feeds the Chesapeake Bay. Those changes can still be seen today.

    Difficulty: Moderate. We will walk about 2.5 miles. Some of the walking (about 1,000 feet) will be off trail, over bumpy terrain that has brambles. None of the trail is paved. There are no hills.

    What to wear/What to bring: Dress weather appropriate, sunscreen, water

    Location: We will meet on the east side of Dulaney Valley Road, at its intersection with Chapelwood Lane. Street parking is available on Chapelwood Lane. Please be very careful in crossing Dulaney Valley Road.

    Who is Bill?

    Bill Curtis is a National Park Ranger currently stationed at Hampton National Historic Site and Fort McHenry National Monument and Historic Shrine. While a history major at Gettysburg College, he began his career as a Licensed Battlefield Guide.  His NPS career has included full time duty as an interpreter, law enforcement officer, and he now works in the Resource Management Division, splitting his time between museum work and helping to care for the historic landscape. He is a Maryland Master Naturalist, and he is happily married and the proud father of two.

    Opportunity:  A volunteer is needed to assist with participant sign-in and collecting waivers. If you would like to volunteer the event cost is waived. Please contact Emily at eglaeser@marylandnature.org for more information.
