Sunflowers as far as the eye can see! This video captures some of sunflower fun at the McKee-Beshers WMA, a 2,000-acre area on River Road just outside Seneca, MD (between Potomac and Poolesville in Montgomery County).
Each summer, McKee-Beshers Wildlife Management Area (WMA) is planted with several fields of sunflowers. The location and varieties of sunflower planting change each year. Some fields may be a far hike from nearby parking spots; other fields can be situated right near the main road. Local flower-lovers enjoy the annual hunt for the sunflowers and exchange tips online for tracking when they will be at absolute peak.
