Description: AWS is working to restore the wetlands to the shore of the Anacostia River. This Wetland Workday may involve planting wetland plants, repairing fencing, or removing debris. Most work is done by standing in the river while wearing waders, so this is a truly unique experience!

Physical Requirements: This event will likely involve digging, lifting, bending, and walking for fair distances. Participants will be expected to wear boots or waders for the duration of the event. The event is not suitable for children or those with health issues. If you think any of the physical requirements will be problematic, please let us know or consider joining another event.

Registration is required. Please register at least 2 days prior to the event date you chose to volunteer in order to receive additional information regarding proper clothing, etc.
