Patuxent National Research Refuge, Laurel, MD
The largest natural area left in central Maryland is just to the south of Howard County. It is very diverse in natural habitat ranging from marshland to floodplain forest to upland hardwood forest to oak savannah. Just 1000 acres of Oak Savanna remain in Maryland and most of it is at Patuxent Refuge or to the northeast at Soldiers Delight Natural Enviromnental Area near Reisterstown. Originally, there was 150 000 acres of the barrens within Maryland. Many endangered plant species occur within this ecosystem.
