On Sunday morning, the Potomac Conservancy is offering a program by eco-historian Hayden Mathews, who will give "an interactive talk which will weave regional history, natural history, and geology to interpret the forces and events that shaped both the Potomac River and the people that have lived on its banks for the past 12,000 years."

Coming up - Register now for the walk we're leading on August 14, focusing on late summer fruits, flowers, and fungi on the Northwest Branch Trail, Silver Spring, MD.

More details and many more options for the week ahead are on our calendar.
