Birds, Plants & Biodiversity on the Canal

Birds, Plants & Biodiversity on the Canal

Date: Sat, May 19th 2018

The Georgetown mile of the C&O Canal National Historical Park is an urban park, and an artifact of an industrial history, but it is also a natural oasis, a home to many kinds of birds, trees, flowers and other flora and fauna. Georgetown Heritage Executive Director and Master Naturalist Alison Greenberg and Arlington County Urban Forester Vincent Verweij will lead a walk to discover the resident and migrant birds that are coming through D.C. on their way to north for the summer, and the ecology of the Canal that is sustaining them. The tour will begin at Fishmarket Square, and go west, beyond the Aqueduct.

Space is limited, please RSVP online.

When: Saturday, May 19 from 4 PM – 6 PM
Where: Fish Market Square (corner of Grace & Potomac Streets, NW)

Participants are encouraged to bring binoculars and cameras, bug spray, and water. The tour will stay on the towpath, which is a flat gravel surface and accessible to most levels of mobility.
