Near DC and wondering what’s up with all of the sunflowers on your social media? Blame all of those blooms on the McKee-Beshers Wildlife Management area!
Each Spring the Maryland Department of Natural Resources Wildlife and Heritage Service plants multiple fields of sunflowers, which act not only to help bees and other pollinators but also as food for mourning doves and other songbirds.
The vista makes for beautiful picnic views – and obviously great social media snaps. But no picking allowed!
