Signs of Spring Nature Walk

Audrey Carroll Sanctuary

Saturday, March 19th 9:00-11:00 

Marsh Marigold

A Nature Walk at the Audrey Carroll Audubon Sanctuary near Mt. Airy will be sponsored by the Audubon Society of Central Maryland. We will be looking for signs of spring, from swelling buds on trees to early spring migrant birds. Bluebirds will probably be laying claim to the nest boxes. We will also have a chance to see how the winter's cold winds and  snow may have affected the sanctuary. If the winter weather has kept you indoors, make this your chance to get out for a walk through some meadows and forests.

People of all ages are welcome.
  Meet at 9 a.m. at the entry gate to the sanctuary at 13030 Old Annapolis Road (just east of Detrick Road) in Mt. Airy.

No rest room facilities are available, and the walk will be cancelled in the event of inclement weather. For further information contact Dave or Elaine Pardoe at or or 410-381-0449.

2011 Native Plant Sale

Audrey Carroll Sanctuary

Saturday, April 30th, 9:00-2:00

We're heading into March, and signs that Spring is coming are increasing every day. Of course, one sure sign of Spring is the announcement of our upcoming ASCM Native Plant Sale!


The planting season will be here before you know it, so now's the time to start planning for additions, improvements (and any needed repairs after Winter's ravages) in your own native plant habitat.


The ASCM 2011 Native Plant Sale will be held on Saturday, April 30th, 2011. We'll open at 9:00 AM sharp, rain or shine, and wrap up at 2:00 PM.

This will be our 13th annual sale, and our volunteers are well into planning an event that's bigger and better than ever!


As always, the sale will be held on the grounds of the Audrey Carroll Audubon Sanctuary, 13030 Old Annapolis Road, just west of the town of Mount Airy, Maryland. (Click here for a map and directions.)
