Thursday: Arlington's Natural Heritage Resource Inventory

Here's an event coming up on Thursday night:
Please join us for a presentation on the natural treasures in our backyards!
Thursday, February 4, 7:00 pm
Introduction by County Board Chairman Jay Fisette
Arlington County Central Library Auditorium
1015 N. Quincy Street, 2 blocks from Virginia Square Metro
Come early and explore table displays from partner groups, 6:30 ‐7:00 pm

The county’s natural resources are more extensive and diverse than might be expected in an urban setting. Within Arlington's boundaries are globally-rare natural communities, old-age forest remnants, wetlands and springs, a number of state champion trees, and unique locations harboring many uncommon plants and wild flowers. Greg Zell, Natural Resource Specialist with Arlington County, Virginia, will discuss the County's efforts in documenting Arlington's natural resources at 7 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 4, at Arlington’s Central Library Auditorium, 1015 North Quincy St.
Via the flyer, here's a photo of Greg Zell at base of some Arlington natural heritage -- the largest tree in Arlington, a tulip poplar at Fort C.F. Smith Park:
