SONG Program Brings Student, Volunteer, and AWS Staff Cooperation To A New Level

The AWS education team has been keeping busy this fall working with area students and volunteers to improve the biodiversity within the watershed.  Saving Our Native Grasslands (SONG) is a new program we have created to bolster the efforts of our stewardship team in their work on the Anacostia Riparian Meadow Restoration project (ARMR).

A Leafy Way to Spend a Saturday

This past Saturday, more than 70 volunteers of all ages joined AWS staff and interns to plant trees on the hillside surrounding the Bladensburg Wetlands!

Many thanks to the wonderful volunteers pictured below, as well the others who have joined us in the last two weeks! As a direct result of their hard work, we have planted more than 100 of the 900 trees planned for this location.  

We still need your help! Tree plantings with AWS are scheduled for every Saturday in April! Click here to visit the calendar to sign up, or call our Volunteer Coordinator at 301-699-6204 ext. 109. 

See you there!

Volunteer with the AWS crew; Saturday's cleanup at Indian Creek was a success

This Saturday, AWS partnered with Citizens to Conserve & Restore Indian Creek (CCRIC) in Beltsville for an extremely productive and fun cleanup. We collected more than 825 pounds of bagged trash, 435 pounds of large trash items, and 250 pounds of tires.  In the video, AWS Volunteer and Membership Coordinator Maddie Koenig talks about the day's progress, Vicky of CCRIC shares about the work CCRIC does, and I share a bit of what we've done in the past year as a whole!
