Participate in the City Nature Challenge April 30th through May 3rd

Explore the Mount Vernon Trail and contribute to scientific understanding of biodiversity during the City Nature Challenge! Using the free iNaturalist app, capture clear photos of wild plants, animals, fungi, and other living organisms, and share them with a worldwide network of hobbyists, naturalists, and scientists to learn about the nature around you. At the same time you’ll be adding to a global data set that helps us understand the distribution, movement, and diversity of life on our planet.

Participating in the City Nature Challenge is a great way to learn the names of the species you see on the trail. It is also helpful to the Friends of the Mount Vernon Trail by helping to identify the location of invasive plants

Other great ways to help the Friends of the Mount Vernon Trail is to volunteer at or donate at
