A Walk with Jan Meyer

Saturday, February 10, 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM

Come to Fred Crabtree Park, a lovely park in Herndon, Virginia, with Jan Meyer to find out what grows there and what is green in winter. Jan will point out a variety of green plant life, including a lichen, a few mosses, a couple of ferns, three clubmosses, a little seep plant, and some forbs, shrubs, and trees. Learn to distinguish between Pitch Pine and Virginia Pine, which are side by side at the park.

Jan Meyer is a Fairfax Master Naturalist, member of VNPS, and also the VNPS Grass Bunch. Over the years she has adopted Fred Crabtree Park and has led invasive species removal efforts there in addition to naturalist walks.
