Aquatic Plant Primer
September 21, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm
21 September (Saturday) 2019. Aquatic plant primer, an introduction; all are welcome. In the morning, we will examine common wetland species in and around Spring Lake, but Heteranthera multiflora and Wolffiella gladiata, NJ rare species, are likely. After lunch, we will visit a tidal marsh site, part of the northernmost tidal freshwater wetland on the Delaware River. Access is muddy; be prepared for wet walking. Knee high boots or VERY old footwear are recommended especially for the tidal site. Bring lunch and beverage; insect repellent is not usually needed.
