FODMers Participated in the Environment Expo
FODM Board of Directors member helped staff FODM's table.
The Friends of Dyke Marsh exhibited at Fairfax County Board of Supervisors’ Mount Vernon Supervisor Dan Storck’s Environment Expo on November 10, 2018, an event which Supervisor Storck hopes to hold again. Over 130 people attended and were inspired to become better environmental stewards in eight workshops and in watching the movie “Hometown Habitat.”
The cafeteria housed 25 exhibitors, including conservation groups, Dominion Energy, Covanta Energy, the National Park Service, Faith Alliance for Climate Solutions, county agencies and others.

||These two conservation-minded middle schoolers demonstrated the impact of human activities on water quality.
|They applied water on a construction site and a factory. The runoff from each (brown from the construction site, red from the factory) flowed downhill, eventually polluting the river.
