Description

The Friends of Dyke Marsh invite you to hear about underwater plants in the freshwater tidal Potomac River in a talk titled "Aquatic Macrophyte Abundance and Diversity." Our speaker, Dr. Nancy Rybicki, will discuss native and non-native plant trends and describe investigations into the exotic water chestnut in the Potomac River watershed. Dr. Rybicki, an aquatic plant biologist and hydrologist, is in the National Research Program of the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) Water Resources Division.

This program is co-sponsored by the Friends of Theodore Roosevelt Island, the Mattawoman Watershed Society, the Potowmack Chapter of the Virginia Native Plant Society, the Potomac Riverkeeper Network, and Earth Sangha. The talk is free and open to the public.
