Budbreak and Spring Wildflowers on Theodore Roosevelt Island (Guided Walk — Audubon Naturalist Society)
April 27, 2022 @ 9:30 am - 12:30 pm EDT$35 – $49
Join Melanie Choukas-Bradley, author of the award-winning new book, Finding Solace at Theodore Roosevelt Island, for an April exploration of Theodore Roosevelt Island, a 90-acre island in the Potomac that serves as a fitting memorial to our conservationist and naturalist 26th president—and Audubon Naturalist Society member! We’ll witness the springtime foliage and flowers of the island’s remarkable trees and April-blooming wildflowers of the upland woods, floodplain forest, swamp, and tidal marsh. Of course, we’ll keep our eyes open for wood ducks, great blue herons, belted kingfishers, ospreys and bald eagles. Melanie will share details of the island’s fascinating history during the walking exploration of this picturesque urban oasis. Our circuit walk will traverse natural surface trails and boardwalk, both of which may be muddy and/or slippery.
