Join volunteer Siobhan Percey in celebrating the 10th Annual Skunk Cabbage Swamp Stomp!  Skunk cabbage is Maryland’s First Flower of the Year, blooming in January. This is but one of its fascinating characteristics. It is alleged to be over 72 million years old, changing little over that time. It is an extraordinary plant, possessing peculiarities found in few others. Siobhan is a Master Naturalist and Jug Bay’s resident Skunk Cabbage expert. She will lead you on an off trail walk to visit this fascinating plant that lives along the swamp and wetland edges. Don’t forget your boots! Bring a small flashlight or penlight if you have one. Ages: 12 and up. $5 per person. No refunds. Registration and current health guidelines required.
