Estuarine Biology

Eco Invaders

This exhibit, found at the end of the Gallery, gives us a new perspective on our role in the ecosystem – the unintended consequences of introducing non-native species into the environment. The exhibit features live Northern Snakeheads made notorious in the 2002 Crofton Pond episode. It also highlights such familiars as the mute swan, nutria, kudzu, and the ubiquitous Phragmites that has taken over so much of the Chesapeake marsh, as well as such common neighbors as sparrows and rats. Special lighting and impressive original illustrations add to the drama of this provocative story.
