Local wildlife

March 22, 2011

On Sunday, we went with some friends for the first time to Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens, a DC institution along the Anacostia river. Here’s the National Park Service map. As it turns out the world famous waterlilies are still wintering, so we saw a lot of muddy water. But, it was a sunny day and it gave us a chance to admire nature’s resilience given the awful pollution of the Anacostia river.Rachel spotted the creature pictured here – I think he’s a black rat snake. We also saw a wide variety of birds, a little turtle, and trash.
