Nature Loop

The start of the Nature Loop passes through a meadow that is full of flowers during the spring, summer, and fall. This meadow is an important habitat for pollinators, such as Maryland’s 400+ species of ground-dwelling bees that leave nesting holes throughout the meadow. Charles County Parks will soon enhance this area by introducing 14 native herbaceous plant species that will act as host plants for bees, butterflies, and other insects.
