City Nature Challenge Bioblitz

Saturday, Apr 27, 2019

7:00am – 11:00pm

Join us to document as many springtime animals, plants, and fungi as possible at the Clifton Institute! This event is part of the 2019 City Nature Challenge. We will be working with like minded organizations to document as many species as possible in the Washington D.C. metro area. And we’ll be adding observations to our own long-term bioblitz. We will start with a bird walk, then look for all other kinds of species during the day, and end with moths and crickets in the evening! People of all skill levels are most welcome, but we are especially in need of people with expertise in invertebrates, fungi, and plants. And we need photographers to help document species. April 28th is the rain date. If you are interested in participating, please register below or email Bert at
