Earth’s Biosphere is the only known planetary ecosystem in our Cosmos of billions of celestial bodies and more. Within our Biosphere are many smaller ecosystems including the Washington, D.C., Area, Ecosystem (WDCAE) — our fragile home. It contains Washington, D.C., and its four surrounding counties. Edward Barrows will talk about the WDCAE and his book-in-progress with the same name. He will cover some basic ecosystem concepts and show many original photos of the WDCAE, in an interactive, lecture-discussion format.
