Nature awaits discovery at almost every turn in the complex ecosystem of Washington, D.C. In parks large and small, within the District's gardens, and on public streets, there is tremendous biodiversity. In Field Guide to the Natural World of Washington, D.C., naturalist Howard Youth takes us on an urban safari, describing the wild side of the nation's capital.

Beyond the abundant wildlife that can be seen in every neighborhood, Washington boasts a large park network rich in natural wonders. A hike along the trails of Rock Creek Park, one of the country’s largest and oldest urban forests, quickly reveals white-tailed deer, eastern gray squirrels, and little brown bats. Mayapples, Virginia bluebells, and red mulberry trees are but a few of the treasures found growing at the National Arboretum. A stroll along the Potomac and Anacostia Rivers might reveal stealthy denizens such as bullfrogs, largemouth bass, and common snapping turtles. Detailed drawings by Carnegie artist Mark A. Klingler and photography by Robert E. Mumford, Jr., reveal the rich color and stunning beauty of the flora and fauna awaiting every D.C. naturalist.

Whether seeking a secluded jog or an adventurous outing, residents and tourists alike will find this handsome guide indispensable for finding oases away from the noise of the city.

Book Description:

A field guide to plants and animals commonly found in the nation's capital.

From the Back Cover:

Within weeks of arriving in Washington, I heard from my friend Mark Klingler, who was just completing the illustrations for a book about the natural history of my new home. Mark had teamed with author Howard Youth and photographer Robert Mumford, Jr., to create a neat and portable volume about the nature that exists in my new city. Using a combination of paintings, photographs, and prose, they tell tales of the city’s parks and paths and do a great job of exploring and exposing the biodiversity that permeates the city.

Located at the confluence of the Potomac and Anacostia Rivers at the head of Chesapeake Bay and just downstream from the Fall Line that marks the edge of the Appalachian Piedmont, Washington is a natural crossroads for migratory birds and a great place to experience the forests of the East Coast. The book describes the best locales to escape from sometimes frantic city life, places that provide opportunities for close encounters with nature.―From the Foreword by Kirk Johnson, Sant Director, Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History
