Potomac near DCA

August 22nd, 2016 by admin · No Comments

Corrine Irwin (Quad 034)

Surveyed the Potomac River from Gravelly Point, along the full perimeter of DCA, through and beyond the Washington Sailing Marina/Dangerfield Island (38.864427, -77.038515 to 38.830060, -77.038029). It was wonderful to see such a thick, lush bed of grasses yesterday!  I’m not sure how far beyond the lat/long I provided it extended. I saw Cd, Ed, Hd, Nm, and Va. Hd was most prevalent, with other species interspersed, and a few dense areas of Va.  Grass bed was dense throughout the area, extending from the shoreline out about 75-100 feet or more.
