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

The 2013 Native Plant Sale will be held on Saturday, April 27th, opening at 9:00 AM sharp, rain or shine, and wrapping up at 2:00.


As always, the sale will be held on the grounds of the Audrey Carroll Audubon Sanctuary, 13030 Old Annapolis Road,

We love our volunteers! If interested in helping out at the plant sale,

Winter Wildlife Nature Walk

February 16th, 9:00 am 

Fred Archibald Sanctuary



Winter may still be with us, but it may be losing its grip! We will see not only wintering birds but possibly some very early spring migrants. Buds will be swelling, waiting for warm weather. The sanctuary contains both meadows and forests so there is a wide variety of habitats for different wildlife. The walk is suitable for all ages.


Meet at 9 a.m. at the entrance to the sanctuary, which is on the east side of Boyer's Mill Road, one mile north of Rte. 144 in New Market. Wear hiking boots or other waterproof footgear and clothing appropriate for the predicted weather. There are no rest room facilities at the sanctuary, and the walk will be cancelled in the event of extreme weather or deep snow. For more information see the or contact Mark Kulis at 301-514-5419 or




Our Nature Walks are always free of charge,
and suitable for the whole family.
People of all ages are welcome.

The Great Backyard Bird Count 

February 15 - 18


The 2013 Great Backyard Bird Count (GBBC) will start on Friday, February 15th, and run through the following Monday, February 18th.

If you haven't participated in past years, give it a try this year! You'll see how getting involved in a scientific effort can actually be fun and easy! The GBBC is

open to everyone!

Remember, just by doing what you enjoy doing anyway, watching the birds at your feeders, you can help to make this annual event successful. Your bird counting contributions really do count, and it's always impressive to see how the many small contributions add up to create a big, comprehensive picture of our U.S. bird population.
