Wildflower Seed-Bombing

  • Fish Market Square (corner of Grace & Potomac Streets) 3255 Grace St NW Washington, DC, 20007 United States (map)

This spring, while the canal remains empty as construction wraps up on Locks 3 & 4, a section of the canal bed will spring to life with native wildflowers! Students from Hyde Addison elementary will be learning about native plants and making seedbombs loaded with native plants.

Join students and their families as we launch their hand-made wildflower seed clusters into the C&O Canal.

We will be launching seeds into the canal every half hour from 10 am until 12 noon, so stop by anytime!

This program is sponsored by the National Fund for the U.S. Botanic Garden.
