The 2018 meeting will explore Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, famed for rich limestone habitats, including Shenk’s Ferry, which has one of the best wildflower displays in the northeast. Nearby is the greatest concentration of serpentine sites in the northeast. Serpentine rocks create a chemically distinctive soil that many plants don’t tolerate, leaving the scene clear for serpentine specialists, including some that almost never grow off serpentine.  

Cost is approximately $300.00.
