What: Plant Walk 

Where: Eidolon Nature Preserve, Morgan County

When: Sunday, July 12, 2015

Time: 10:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.

Cost: Free

Walk Leader: Joe Metzger

Join Joe Metzger as he scours the property of Eidolon Nature Preserve for various common and also extremely rare plants. 

This is the second of three planned walks that will offer unique opportunities to participate in a systematic effort to compare the plants growing now on the Eidolon property to those recorded there as far back as 70 years ago.

The walks are scheduled for May 10, July 12 and September 13. You may choose to participate in just one or all three. 

The Eidolon property was purchased in 1945 by Louis and Marguerite Zapoleon. Over several decades, Mrs. Marguerite Zapoleon documented plants and animals which she had seen on the property. According to Mrs. Zapoleon's wishes, it became a nature preserve after she passed away in 2003. 

For more than 5 decades, Mrs. Zapoleon kept careful records of the plants and animals she had seen on the property. These records survived (they can be found on the PVAS website) and the planned series of walks will attempt to relocate the 600 species of plants that Mrs. Zapoleon recorded. Those plants include 30 very rare species (of these, Mr. Metzger has only seen 4).

The walks are co-sponsored by the Maryland Native Plant Society.

Anyone with an interest is welcome to attend, however registration is strongly encouraged. Registration for each of the walks is separate and all walks can be found chronologically on the website calendar under Events Calendar. 

Please dress for the weather, bring bug spray, sun screen, drinking water and a sack lunch. You may also like to have along a camera and binoculars. 

Meet in the parking lot at Eidolon Nature Preserve at 10:00 a.m. The preserve is located on Sideling Hill Mountain Northwest of Great Cacapon. Directions to Eidolon Nature Preserve can be found on the Eidolon page.
