To celebrate the productive botanical life of Larry Morse, please Join the 
Botanical Society of Washington for a field trip to the Ice Mountain 
Preserve on Saturday June 9, 2012, at 10 am in North River Mills, West 
Virginia.

This site was selected to recognize Larry's botanical interests and 
conservation efforts as well as his commitment to getting people of all 
ages to sites of biological interest. He lead field trips to this popular 
TNC Preserve that features an ice vent system at the base of talus slopes 
along the North River, with boreal plant species more common to the north 
and is also habitat for neotropical migrant birds. See this link for a 
flyer on the preserve and driving instructions from Winchester, VA.
