The heart of the book presents detailed information on specific parks, trails, riverbanks, marshes, and other natural areas where wildflowers thrive. Detailed maps of the locations and directions show readers how to get to each site. A final section lists some 450 wildflower species found in the region, noting each flower's blooming period, its preferred habitat, the locations where it can be found, and whether it is common, uncommon, or rare.

Industry Reviews

A rich and welcome resource for everyone who enjoys wildflowers-casual walker and dedicated student alike... Finding Wildflowers describes dozens of parks, preserves, and other sites within about a hundred miles of the Baltimore-Washington corridor. And it goes well beyond simple description, placing these sites in the context of the region's natural environment, and providing a detailed checklist of species the visitor may see. -- Mary Pockman * Audubon Naturalist News * A trio of authors (two from the Audubon Society) deliver loads of information about plant life and geology, as well as outlining scores of trails and sites to visit in natural areas... Includes a month-by-month guide to blooming seasons for a variety of plants. * Baltimore Magazine *
