DC area iNat meetup!

This morning seven iNaturalists plus two toddlers met up at the Woodend Sanctuary in Chevy Chase, Maryland.

Left to right: muir (Matt Muir), muir's son, calopteryx (Matthew O'Donnell), briangratwicke (Brian Gratwicke), jhammock (Jen Hammock), treegrow (Katja Schulz), botanygirl (Amanda Treher), carrieseltzer (Carrie Seltzer), and Carrie's daughter.

The littlest naturalists shared their food. Katja also made delicious date bars (I don't think we got photographic documentation though so it's unverifiable).

We had a lovely time exploring just a small section of the sanctuary. I think naturalists and toddlers move at about the same speed :-) Between talking and toddler wearing/chasing, I didn't make many observations. briangratwicke, treegrow, muir, and calopteryx all came with nice cameras so watch for their observations.

Who wants to organize the next one? Pick a time and place!
