Park Inventory: Constitution Gardens
May 4, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 12:30 pm EDTFree
Join Casey Trees and the National Park Service at Constitution Gardens to collect important information about trees on the National Mall.
If you love science, trees and promoting green infrastructure on our national monuments, this is the event for you! Come put your tree skills to the test and take in some fresh air with fellow nature enthusiasts.
Participants will receive a short, hands-on training on site. After learning the tools and techniques, participants will split into groups and begin assessing trees. We will document tree species, height, diameter of the trunk, width of the crown, overall health, and more.
Who Should Attend?
Open to the general public, you do not need any prior experience to join us. If you have participated in our Trees 101 or Trees 201 class, this will be a great way to put your species identification into action!
We will plan to conduct the inventory rain, shine or with frosty temperatures so please wear appropriate clothing and comfortable shoes for walking short distances. Participants are welcome to bring water and light snacks.
Constitution Gardens is just north of the eastern half of the Lincoln Memorial Reflecting Pool. Federal Triangle Metro Station is five blocks east. There are also numerous bike trails which converge on the National Mall.
Where to Meet
Be on the lookout for the green/white Casey Trees table near the north western part of the pond, near the park area designated “Pakistan Park”. Participants will be emailed a detailed map closer to the inventory date.
