Overview

Join AMC's Potomac Chapter as we participate in the National Aquarium's Fort McHenry Field Day on Saturday September 30th, 2017 and help celebrate National Public Lands Day with the National Aquarium Conservation Team. They need our help to remove debris from the marsh and enhance the area with beneficial native plant gardens. Cleanup data will contribute to the Ocean Conservancy's International Coastal Cleanup. Date: Saturday. 30 September 2017 Time: 10:00 AM - 1:00 PM Location: Fort McHenry National Monument and Historic Shrine 2400 E.

Once you have successfully registered you will receive an email the week of the event which will contain complete details. Please contact Stephanie Mathias at the National Aquarium (conserve@aqua.org or 410-576-1014) for registration questions.

Work may be strenuous, and footing can be unsteady. Appropriate attire and footwear are recommended. We look forward to seeing you on the 30th as part of the AMC Potomac group!
