ANA-11 on 11.11.11

The Anacostia Watershed Society educators and stewardship team worked together yesterday and this morning in a mad dash effort to collect seeds before the weather gets too cold.  This time around we geared up in gloves and chest waders and worked our way through the mud in the ANA-11 marsh where we collected both Pickerelweed and Arrow Arum seeds.  These seeds will be used in the combined efforts of education and wetland restoration.  Many of these seeds will find their way to area classrooms where students will care for them during the winter as part of our Rice Rangers program.  AWS staff will then lead these students to our various restoration sites along the Anacostia where they will plant their sprouts and have the chance to watch them grow and produce seeds of their own.  Projects like this are a great way to engage students in hands-on science in their own community.  These wetland projects also serve the Anacostia watershed by deflecting and absorbing stormwater runoff, holding off invasive species and providing habitat for native fauna.  Hopefully we can get out there a few more times before winter sets in.

I have been surfing online more than three hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It's pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all website owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the internet will be much more useful than ever before.
