Registration is closed

Speaker: Jeannie Allen, Science Education Specialist, Sigma Space Corp at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center

Though air quality in our region has improved, in summer we still experience ozone levels that are well above what is healthy for plants, animals, and people. Several common native plants are sensitive to ozone and, when over-exposed, show specific changes in their leaves. Come learn how ozone is formed; how to recognize ozone damage and which plants may show it; and hear an update on our regional air quality based on NASA observations of Earth from space.

IMPORTANT: CHANGE IN LOCATION (this month only): Wheaton Library, 11701 Georgia Avenue, Wheaton, MD.

Directions: Directions to the Library

There will be refreshments. Pot luck refreshments are always welcome. Bring native plants for "give-a-ways"

The meeting is open to non-members.
