Science for Citizens: Decades of Change in the Patuxent River and its Tributary Companions - Cancelled

April 21, 2020 7:00pm to 8:00pm iCal Google Calendar


The Patuxent River estuary has been changing for centuries, but we only have relatively detailed information on the ecology of the river over the most recent decades. In annual reports of the overall ‘health’ of the River, the Patuxent consistently receives poor grades, despite extensive restoration efforts. During this seminar, discover how recent monitoring in the Patuxent and its many small tributary companions has helped to reveal some of the mysteries of this river estuary.
