Saturday, August 16th, 2014 at 8:43 am

GWAPA will host a summer picnic on August 23rd at Lake Needwood in Rockville, MD at 1:00pm. In addition, we will conduct a tour of the local native plants around the lake. This is your chance to find out what aquatic plants grow right in your backyard! We will hold an auction at this event, but swapping of plants is encouraged between members to keep it small. Members and non-members are welcome. Please, no alcoholic beverages.

Please indicate your attendance on our forum here:
