October 20, 2020: Decades of Change in the Patuxent River and its Tributary Companions

Date: October 20, 2020

Time: 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

FREE public webinar.

The Patuxent River estuary has been changing for centuries, but we have relatively detailed information on the ecology of the river for only 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 to better inform its restoration.

Presented by: Dr. Jeremy Testa
