      The Friends of Dyke Marsh and the Potowmack Chapter of the Virginia Native
      Plant Society invite you to the following event.


      The Marsh In Bloom:

      Nature Walk at the Dyke Marsh Nature Preserve

      Saturday, August 18 - 10:00 am


      In late summer, the marsh is in bloom and humming with pollinators. Please
      join us for a nature walk led by Dr. Elizabeth Wells, Associate Professor
      Emerita of Botany at the George Washington University. The emphasis will be
      on native plants and identification of "pollinator syndromes"-flower
      characteristics (such as color, fragrance, or shape) that may appeal to a
      particular type of pollinator.


      The walk is co-sponsored by the Friends of Dyke Marsh and the Potowmack
      Chapter of the Virginia Native Plant Society. It is free and open to all.

      RSVP is not required for this walk. We hope to see you there!

      Directions: The Dyke Marsh Wildlife Preserve is part of the George
      Washington Memorial Parkway, U.S. National Park Service, and is located on
      the western shoreline of the Potomac River about two miles south of Old Town
      Alexandria. We'll walk along the Mount Vernon bike trail, concentrating on
      the wooden bridge/boardwalk that spans part of the marsh. We'll meet near
      the trail at the southern end of the bridge, just opposite Tulane Drive.
      Park on Tulane Drive or Park Terrace Drive and walk across the Parkway.
      Detailed directions are on the Friends of Dyke Marsh website: www.fodm.org.


      The walk will go on in a light rain, but not a severe storm. If you are in
      doubt, call Pat Salamone at 703-329-1748 the morning of the walk.
