Baltimore Aquarium Conservation Team visits AWS

On Monday, my fellow Chesapeake Conservation Corps Volunteer Laura Cattell brought her Conservation Team at the National Aquarium in Baltimore down for a visit.  We had the pleasure of introducing them to our watershed, engaging them in some cleanup work and sharing trade secrets.

As we always do, we highlighted the historic quality of the Anacostia River -- how much life in the early colonial period of this area depended on the river -- as well as showing our organization's approach to the challenges we face today.  Our guests were amazed when Eric mentioned that prior to agricultural development and unsustainable settlement, Bladensburg was a bigger port than Baltimore!

After a combined paddle tour-cleanup, we visited Nash Run Trash Trap to share our approach to trash issues in our watershed.  Masaya gave an excellent presentation detailing our efforts to reduce trash, illustrating how the trap works and what our data indicates.

We were very pleased to show them about our workplace, work sites, and watershed.  We look forward to more opportunities to share experiences and visit their team some time!

Hey there would you mind sharing which blog platform you're working with? I'm planning to start my own blog in the near future but I'm having a hard time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I'm looking for something completely unique. P.S Apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!
