Explore the Ephemeral Marsh of the C&O Canal - Saturday, August 18th 10:00 - 11:30 am

The temporary closing of the C&O Canal has created conditions for an abundant wetland in the heart of Georgetown! Join City Wildlife and Biophilic DC for an exploration of this “pop-up” marsh that has attracted many grasses and other plants, birds, bugs, and aquatic life. We’ll enjoy and document this rich, spontaneous wetland before the National Park Service restoration turns it once again into a flowing canal.

iNaturalist users and other citizen scientists welcome! Help from people who know plants, odonates, fishes, and herps would be particularly appreciated. Meet on Saturday, August 18th at 10:00 am at 33rd Street on the Canal.

This event is free and all are welcome, but space is limited, so please register to attend by sending an email to City Wildlife (info@citywildlife.org).

Tagging past field trip participants and a few additional DC area naturalists. @achang @ashley_bradford @botanygirl @briangratwicke @calopteryx @capitalnaturalist @carrieseltzer @dossification @ecologyelise @etotin @geem @gwh @hughmcguinness @jhammock @jmgconsult @judygva @kestrelsparverius @krosenthal @laura_sebastianelli @lynnparsons @mark376 @maryeford @mdnaturalist @mellis @mmn_noriko @peggyo @rhondaridley @rumeltr @shinnickj @vincent12
