5th Anacostia River Bioblitz Official Results Are In

These are the final results of our 5th #anacostiabioblitz (this past Sept. 16-19). We had a record number of participants, both iNaturalist.org app users, and people that attended our events. Participants observed a record number of species for the following groups of organisms: reptiles, fish, mollusks, arachnids, and insects.

Some notable observations:

-Bald eagles, wild turkey and a scarlet tanager.
-During the fish surveys we observed many young shad including both Alewife and American shad (a great sign for these species in the river), and a longnose gar!
-The honey bee was the most observed insect during the weekend.
-Marsh fleabanes in bloom.
-A bioluminescent mushroom!
