FREE ticketed event

Help us kick off this year’s City Nature Challenge DC with talks by notable scientists, citizen scientists, government stewards, and nature advocates. These experts will share their insights into the biodiversity found in the region, from Rock Creek Park to Shenandoah National Park, from back yard shrubbery to the dark alleys of the city.


Hang around after the program to chat and get some pointers on how to participate in the City Nature Challenge.
