McKee-Beshers Wildlife Management Area
McKee-Beshers WMA is a 2000 acre area located on River Road just outside of Seneca, Maryland – not far from the intersection of River Rd and Rt 112. McKee-Beshers is on the left hand side of the road.
There are two crop fields. The first is located just off River Road at the first parking lot for Mc-Kee Beshers. The second field is on Sycamore Landing Road, just south of River Road. You’ll need to park along the side of the road for the second field since there isn’t a convenient parking lot. Each field covers a few acres.
If you’re wondering why the state grows so many sunflowers – let’s just say – it’s a wildlife management area and McKee-Beshers does have areas set up for hunting and birding.
So if you like sunflowers (and who doesn’t) and you’re in the DC area in the next few weeks – head out to McKee-Beshers Wildlife Management area to see a spectacular display of sunflowers. You’ll see lots of other photographers, artists, and sunflower lovers there. And then you can join all of us who go into complete denial every year about why they really plant them all.
