Stella Tarnay, Co-founder of Capital Nature, will give a presentation on citizen science and observing the nature in our own backyards and neighborhoods.
You don't have to be David Attenborough to be a naturalist! Washington DC abounds with wild plants, animals, and fungi that share our urban environment, and you can make fascinating nature observations close to home.
Stella Tarnay, Co-founder of Capital Nature, will give a presentation on observing the nature in our own backyards and neighborhoods. Stella will focus on tuning in to your senses to sharpen your observation skills, and on citizen science. She'll introduce iNaturalist, a free observation app, that can help you make science-quality findings. Weather permitting, we will go outside during the second half of the program and practice making observations!
Capital Nature and the Georgetown Neighborhood Library are collaborating on this program in preparation for the City Nature Challenge, a global citizen event taking place April 28th to May 1st.
