Event Description: AWS has been experimenting with a stationary device built to strain the trash from the flowing waters of Nash Run, located adjacent the Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens in Northeast DC. This is an excellent opportunity to learn about the trash challenges of the Anacostia--and what is being done to address it.
We need about 10 people for this cleanup. The task requires squatting down for a relatively long time, and may be physically demanding.
Please RSVP because we need to communicate with you prior to the event. This event might be canceled suddenly because the trash trap lies across a small stream and we cannot work during high-flow events. Also, there may be no trash at the end of the month if there is no intense rainfall event by then.
