iNaturalist Meetup at Kingman & Heritage Islands on June 5

Come explore the biodiversity of Kingman & Heritage Islands in DC and meet some fellow iNaturalist enthusiasts!

Sunday, June 5
2-4 pm
RSVP & more details

My colleague @tiwane from California and I will be there with iNaturalist stickers and a few iNaturalist t-shirts.

We'll set up a table and a few chairs on Heritage Island. Grab a name tag, some swag, and then explore the island trails along the Anacostia River. Feel free to introduce yourselves to other iNaturalist enthusiasts who you encounter on the trails.

What biodiversity will you see? Here's the species recorded from Kingman & Heritage Islands in the month of June so far. Hopefully this informal meetup will be able to add to this list!

Getting there:
It's accessible by bus, streetcar, bike trail, or car (it's a 1+ mi walk from a metro station). You should be able to navigate to "Kingman and Heritage Islands Park". Here are more detailed directions of how to get here. If you drive, park in RFK lot 6 (beyond the elevated metro tracks and close to the river).

Please note: the only restrooms are located near the parking area. Once you're on the islands, there won't be any available.

Thank you to the Friends of Kingman & Heritage Islands and Living Classrooms for their support of gathering in this space.

Here's a link to observations today from Kingman Island. Kudos to those of you who've gotten observations up! I might not be able to add mine until later this week.

If anyone wants to suggest a time and location for another event like this, I'd be happy to help spread the word even if I can't personally attend.
