Coordinator notes: Your identification on this one is correct Nancy. When I go to Rock Creek, I usually collect along the road and also up the creek bed just west of the May Museum. I've never had a problem with any of the land owners, not that I'm trying to trespass. A lot of the time, they are not around anyway and I don't think they would have a problem with anyone like yourself taking photos. Mike
