Event Stats


Over 1000 Species Identified in the Biodiversity of the Anacostia River Project!

The 1000 species by Thanksgiving goal has been already met and surpassed!!! The Biodiversity of the Anacostia River Project (https://www.inaturalist.org/projects/biodiversity-of-the-anacostia-river) has now 1193 Anacostia River watershed species identified.

If you haven't moved over to the Biodiversity of the Anacostia River Project we highly recommend joining it and adding all you past and future observations to it!

Make sure you take great quality photos with enough detail and showing those key morphological ID features of the organisms being observed. Take pictures of species you don't know and get them ID'ed by an iNaturalist expert. I've found that is a great way to learn about those unknown plants and critters you have seen and appreciated for years but you don't know what they are. ...more ↓
