Soup and Science

Speaker: Christopher Puttock. His topic will be "Coastal Plain plants of the Chesapeake Bay Watershed".

Join us Sunday afternoon for the last of our 2018 Soup and Science series.  From noon to 1pm, enjoy soup, fresh bread and dessert and catch up with friends and colleagues.

The presentation begins at 1 P M.

The lower coastal plain of the Chesapeake watershed has been altered by more than 300 years of clearing and cultivation leaving a patchwork of farm-fields, forests and fens.  New pressures of different agricultural practices and urban development continue to deplete the native biodiversity of the region. Dr. Puttock will discuss the local ecotype native plants currently available in nurseries for gardens and restoration.

Even though we still have over a week of winter remaining, this is the first day of Daylight Savings Time, so make sure you're adjusted to the right time
