Putah Creek Council’s first CreekSpeak talk of the season features Emily Zefferman talking about “Aquatic Plants of Putah Creek: Ecology and Management” at 7 p.m. Thursday, May 15, at the Winters Library, 708 Railroad Ave.

Her talk will explore the different species of aquatic plants found in the creek, including their unique adaptations, life cycles and importance to Putah Creek’s water quality and wildlife. This talk also will look at management challenges posed by aquatic weed growth in Putah Creek, Lake Solano and the Putah South Canal.

Zefferman is a Ph.D. candidate in the ecology program at UCD. Her research focuses on how riparian restoration can affect aquatic plant communities, and some of this work has been done in Putah Creek.

CreekSpeak is Putah Creek Council’s six-month series of community talks about the nature, culture and history of our region. Talks are free to Putah Creek Council members and open to the public. A $5 donation is requested from nonmembers.
