Do you know why the Utica Marsh looks green? It is Duckweed. These plants are very simple, lacking an obvious stem or leaves, but consist of a small 'thalloid' or plate-like structure that floats on or just under the water surface, with or without simple rootlets
Utica Marsh Annual Clean-Up, April 25th, 2009
We couldn't have asked for a better day. A huge turnout of volunters coupled with fabulous weather equaled a successful event.
A HUGE thank you to everyone who helped to make this a very successful year!!!
We had over 110 volunteers from the community!
The fabulous weather
added to the success of our clean up as we cleared A LOT of trash and
tires out of the marsh (we actually overfilled the tire bin!). We
also had generous donations from Bob's Auto Parts, Walmart, SUNYIT,
and Waste Management!
