Nature Walk - Birds & Biodiversity on the Canal (POSTPONED)

  • C&O Canal Georgetown Visitor Center 1057 Thomas Jefferson Street Northwest Washington, DC, 20007 United States (map)

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.

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.

THIS TOUR IS NOW FULL. You may sign up for the wait list here and we will notify you by Friday, May 18th if a space has opened up.
