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, 2007
Each year volunteers from all over the community get together and help make the Utica Marsh a better place.
Thank you to everyone who gave their time to this cause.
