Sponsoring Organizations: Maryland Native Plant Society and Anacostia Watershed Society
Plants of marshes and swamps don’t always get the same attention as their land-dwelling relatives. This is an opportunity to meet – or get reacquainted with – the wetland plant communities in and around the Anacostia River and a tributary, Dueling Creek. Aquatic plants contribute to the river ecosystem and provide habitat for many fish and other animals. Our focus will be on water-loving woody and herbaceous plants, but we will be on the lookout for anything else of interest in the natural world. Beginners are always welcome!
