Discovering Nature East of the River with the City Nature Challenge

Join us tomorrow for a City Nature Challenge conversation. Tue, April 6, 2021, 7:00 PM – 8:15 PM EDT (Online event), register here: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/discovering-nature-east-of-the-river-with-the-city-nature-challenge-tickets-147913251517?fbclid=IwAR2xoKEI7W2Rw2C9rcihT6xKFhLk3WAEREQP1xIEByDRUw9jl7l6pjujICI

Washington DC’s neighborhoods East of the Anacostia River have some of the most amazing nature in the DC region. Think Anacostia River, aquatic gardens, beautiful parks, historic estates, a grove of legacy cherry blossom trees, and our neighborhoods and backyards. These spaces not only make our communities more livable, they host an abundance of plant and animal life.

If you are interested to learn more about East of the River nature and enjoy a bit of exploration, we invite you to join us for an introduction to the City Nature Challenge. The Challenge is a worldwide citizen science event that invites residents of cities to make observations of wild plants, animals, and even fungi. Our discoveries will help scientists collect important information about wildlife—and shed light on the nature around us in the DMV.

This program will offer an introduction to the City Nature Challenge, natural areas East of the River to explore, and opportunities to get involved. The City Nature Challenge takes place between April 30th and May 9th.

Organizations participating in the City Nature Challenge East of the River in Washington DC include: Capital Nature, Friends of Oxon Run, Friends of Kingman and Heritage Islands, Friends of Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens, Ward 8 Woods, Outdoor Afro DMV, Clean Water Action Chesapeake, DC Department of Parks and Recreation, DDOT Urban Forestry Division, Anacostia Watershed Society, Casey Trees and Urban Adventure Squad.

April 21: 8 days to City Nature Challenge 2021!

City Nature Challenge DC is an annual event that invites observers to record observations between Friday, April 30 and Monday May 3. Observations may be uploaded between April 30 and May 9. On May 10, the global results, organized by city, will be reported out.

The Anacostia watershed is fortunate to have many dedicated observers who regularly share their observations on iNaturalist. The information gathered helps document and celebrate the extraordinary richness of life in the DC region. There are safely distanced and virtual events planned if you would enjoy participating in a group activity during City Nature Challenge.

5! 4! 3! 2! 1! For City Nature Challenge Fun

If you happen to be out and about this weekend, every observation helps document the biodiversity of the Anacostia River! And, you contribute to documenting the overall DC region's wildlife for City Nature Challenge 2021. The DC region contains a great number of habitats, all coming to life in response to spring warmth. Check out City Nature Challenge Washington DC to learn more.

The event runs from Friday April 30 to Monday May 3. Results may be uploaded through May 9th. Observations uploaded are automatically included in the City Nature Challenge DC data if they are observed inside the regional boundaries. The resources page has plenty of helpful information.
