      ==============

      No walks scheduled this weekend, but if you happen to be in DC, you can
      watch me and thousands of others finish the Avon 3-Day Walk at the
      Washington Monument on Sunday afternoon! 60 miles, 3 days, no IVV
      credit :) But it raises millions of dollars for breast cancer
      charities.

      Come walk with the Chesapeake Bay Country Wanderers Adkins Arboretum and
      Tuckahoe State Park Ridgely, MD * Caroline County
      Saturday and Sunday May 19 and 20, 2001
      7 and 10 Km Trails
      SPONSORED BY: The Chesapeake Bay Country Wanderers in cooperation with
      Adkins Arboretum and Tuckahoe State Park.
      START TIME: Anytime between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. Finish by 4 p.m.
      START LOCATION: Visitor's Center Adkins Arboretum 12610 Eveland Road
      Ridgely, MD
      TRAIL: The trails are on natural surface paths through wooded areas. The
      surface is uneven and may be wet in spots. The AVA trail rating is 2.
      Wet weather will make the trails more difficult. Sturdy boots and a
      walking stick are recommended. The trails are not suitable for
      wheelchairs or strollers. Adkins Arboretum is a 400 acre preserve that
      lies within the boundaries of the 3800 acre Tuckahoe State Park. The
      park includes dry, upland woods, bottomland forests, streams, and upland
      meadows. Tuckahoe Creek runs through the park, which includes some of
      the region's most significant forested wetlands. The focus of the
      Arboretum's research and education program is forest and meadow ecology,
      and the native flora of the Delmarva Peninsula. Hopefully, we will see
      some of the beautiful spring wildflowers in bloom.
      REGISTRATION: Everyone is welcome to participate. Each walker must
      register at the start. Children under 12 must be accompanied by an adult
      throughout the entire walk. FEES: There is a charge of $1 to
      participate, unless you desire credit towards IVV awards, for which
      there is a $2.00 registration fee. The trail may be walked twice per
      start card at no additional cost. AWARD: There is no special award for
      this event.
      AMENITIES: Restrooms, water and candy will be available at the start and
      along the trail. There are two new children's playgrounds along the 10
      Km route. One of them is on the 7 Km route, as well. The Arboretum Gift
      Shop will be open both days.

      enjoyable, and memorable event. The Chesapeake Bay Country Wanderers,

      DIRECTIONS: Adkins Arboretum is located 25 miles east of the Chesapeake
      Bay Bridge. After crossing the bridge, continue on Route 50, toward
      Easton. At Wye Mills, turn left at the traffic light onto Route 404.
      Continue on Route 404 for approximately eight (8) miles. Turn left onto
      Route 480. Almost immediately, turn left on Eveland Road. The Arboretum
      is two (2) miles, on the left.
      PLANT SALE Adkins Arboretum holds two large sales annually. One takes
      place May 12th, the Saturday prior to the Chesapeake Bay Country
      Wanderers' visit. They sell only native plants, including a wonderful
      selection of wildflowers, grasses, ferns, groundcovers, vines and woody
      plants (shrubs and trees). Plants will also be on sale May 19th and
      20th. If you are interested in receiving more information about the
      plant sale, please call or e-mail Nancy Adamson at (410) 634-2847 or

      Special Added Attraction on Display On Saturday, May 19, at 1 p.m., at
      the Arboretum Visitor's Center, a Park Ranger will present a 45 minute
      program which will include a display of live birds of prey and reptiles.
      This program is free of charge and is open to the public, courtesy of
      the Chesapeake Bay Country Wanderers. Scales & Tales is an environmental
      education program of the State Forest and Park Service, Maryland
      Department of Natural Resources, which affords people the opportunity to
      see live wildlife, mostly native to Maryland, up close and personal.
      This informative and entertaining program uses live, unreleaseable
      animals to promote stewardship of our wildlife and other natural
      resources. Through the stories, or "tales", of how these animals come
      into the care of the program, Scales & Tales naturalists discuss very
      important environmental issues, such as loss of habitat, environmental
      pollution, resource management, and biodiversity. Scales & Tales reaches
      nearly one million people every year through programs at events such as
      ours. The entertaining and educational program will delight everyone.
