Thanks so much for participating and for making this citizen science effort a success! But, the fun isn't over yet! we still have an ongoing project call "Biodiversity of the Anacostia River" on iNaturalist (with 902 species identified so far! Our challenge is to document the species of the #AnacostiaRiver watershed and use the information for science, conservation, ecological restoration, outdoor recreation and education.
