Event description

Description

As a AAAS Fellow Casey Trees' needs your help to inventory Constitution Gardens!

Take this opportunity to see the National Mall while helping catalogue these iconic trees. Join Casey Trees at Constitution Gardens to inventory this beautifully landscaped space boasting a variety of tree species. Many of these trees have not been surveyed in almost a decade for their health, size or species and we need your help!

Participants will receive a short, hands-on training on site. After learning the tools and techniques participants will split into groups and begin measuring trees. We will be documenting tree species, height, diameter of the trunk, width of the crown, overall health and more.



Who Should Attend?

Any AAAS Fellow interested in learning more about participating in urban forestry citizen science events in Washington, D.C. If you have plant identification knowledge or are interested in bolstering your skills please join us for this fun and engaging event.

Come Prepared

We will plan to conduct the inventory rain or shine so please wear appropriate clothing and comfortable shoes for walking short distances. Participants are welcome to bring water and a snack.


Getting There

Public transportation is the best option for reaching National Mall easily and conveniently. The closest metro to our meeting spot is the Smithsonian Station, which is a six minute walk away. The National Mall Circulator Loop bus will provide easy access in and around the National Mall.


Where to Meet

We will meet on the edge of Constitution Garden on Constitution Ave NW between 17th St NW and 18th St NW. Be on the lookout for the green/white Casey Trees table. Participants will be emailed a detailed map closer to the inventory date.


Meals

Light refreshments will be provided.
