New Opportunities with AWS

As a busy fall winds down at the Anacostia Watershed Society, we are looking ahead toward an exciting new year!

Beginning this winter, AWS will recruit and train individuals like you to help us lead our recreation, education, and restoration events.  

These longer-term volunteer opportunities are the first of its kind for AWS! We are very excited have the opportunity to work with dedicated community members who wish to be a part of our effort to engage and educate the public in the protection and restoration of the Anacostia River.

Specifically, volunteers will help us execute meaningful opportunities for school and community groups, such as tree plantings, canoe trips, paddle nights, community cleanups, pontoon tours, wetland restoration, and seed collection (among others -- see photos above!).

Training will be provided, although individuals interested in events on the water will need some basic paddling experience to start.

Individuals will be welcomed into the AWS family and our network of professionals, provided with opportunities for continued education about the natural environment, and will get great hands-on experience working with diverse groups of individuals.  

The satisfaction that comes from assisting a group of students experience the river for the first time, helping a family learn how to plant a tree, or watching a previously degraded area transform into a newly planted wetland is unmeasurable, and is an experience we would love for you to be a part of! Help us make a difference today!

If you are interested in becoming a part of what we do, please apply!  More information can be found by clicking here, or you can contact our Membership and Volunteer Coordinator at 301-699-6204 ext. 109 or with questions.

An interesting discussion is worth comment. I do believe that you need to publish more about this topic, it might not be a taboo matter but usually people don't speak about such issues. To the next! Best wishes!!
