The sun beckons us out-of-doors. Celebrate springtime by dropping by the B & A Trail Park Ranger Station on Earleigh Heights Road for a copy of the new illustrated wildflower guide.

The $4 guide identifies more than 40 varieties of wildflowers found along the trail, discussing folklore and other plant features.

You can order by mail. Send a self-addressed, stamped envelope with check or money order, made out to Severn River Lions Foundation, to: B & A Trail Park, P.O. Box 1007, Severna Park, Md. 21146.

The rangers would appreciate donations of nature books and reference guides to help stock the office library. A small bookcase also is needed.

For Trail Park information, contact Ranger David DeVault at 222-6244.
