The Street Smart Naturalist: Capitol Hill (Virtual Tour)
With its hip and trendy vibe, Capitol Hill is often seen as the epitome of urban living. And, yet, for those who take the time to slow down and pay attention, it also has a wealth of natural history from native oak trees to curbs made of 32 million-year-old granite to seep-fed ecosystems. On this virtual tour of the hill, naturalist and author David B. Williams will share some of the stories and locations he has found from a lifetime (he grew up on the hill) of exploration. Along the way, he’ll give you a new appreciation of the nature of the city and its wild side.
