Fish in Trash in Nash

“Look at this!,” exclaimed Christopher Moore, an Anacostia Watershed Society volunteer, who helped us clean up the Nash Run trash trap on chilly December 18, 2010.  He found small fish in a plastic cigar tube.  Later he learned that the fish is called a Banded Killifish and was looking for a space to hibernate.

The AWS volunteers and I had mixed feelings about this discovery.  There are still native fish in this heavily polluted stream called Nash Run...but in trash to hibernate.

Despite the cold December weather, Chris, Gabe Horchler, and Jim Thackaberry all came out to clean up the trash trap.  I call them “super volunteers.”  Thank you for helping us whenever we need some extra hands!

Woah! I'm really digging the template/theme of this website. It's simple, yet effective. A lot of times it's challenging to get that "perfect balance" between superb usability and visual appeal. I must say that you've done a superb job with this. In addition, the blog loads very fast for me on Internet explorer. Outstanding Blog!

Wonderful blog! I found it while surfing around on Yahoo News. Do you have any suggestions on how to get listed in Yahoo News? I've been trying for a while but I never seem to get there! Thank you
