Log Description

The 1000ft driving tour bridge you are standing on crosses Mattaponi Creek and was built in 1986 in partnership with The Maryland-National Capital Park & Planning Commission and the Maryland Department of Natural Resources. Mattaponi Creek is a freshwater tributary of the Patuxent River with protected wetlands that are full of life. We are hoping to document seasonal changes in the marsh as well as impacts from climate change such as sea level rise and salt water intrusion.
