    NATIONAL CHERRY BLOSSOMS

    Date: Daily

    Time: All Day

    Details: The Trust for the National Mall has partnered with EarthCam to provide #BloomCam – a 24/7, live, real-time look at one of the most popular and beloved sites in Washington, D.C. The BloomCam allows an immediate view and connection to the Cherry Blossoms during their ‘peak blooms’ this season. The Trust wants to ensure that everyone has an opportunity to view these beautiful blooms that are part of a living cultural landscape and treasured history.  We hope that viewers will engage in our campaign to build the Cherry Tree Endowment and help spread the word to others that we’re supporting the long-term care and maintenance of these beloved Cherry Trees for generations to enjoy.

    BloomCam will rotate views approximately every 60 seconds. Note that due to high amount of users, the video feed may freeze for a couple of seconds. If the feed is not loading, please refresh your browser.
