For adults, although teens 16 years and older may attend.

Hellen Creek Preserve harbors part of an isolated stand of eastern hemlock, the southern-most in Maryland. Some species of plants and animals found here are more characteristic of the Appalachian forest in western Maryland. Hemlocks are just one of a number of interesting plants. One inland wetland includes pawpaw, sassafras, sweet bay magnolia, and winterberry in a braiding streambed.

Be prepared for some difficult terrain, with some up and down and not all on trails; steep in places and wet in others.

For more information on the Preserve:

Suggestions: Wear long pants and sleeves, good hiking shoes/boots, some areas may be muddy. Bring water bottle, snacks and/or lunch. Optional: Field guides, 10x hand lens, binoculars.

Leaders: Karyn Molines & Bob Boxwell
