Thank you so much to everyone who came out for our annual Earth Day Cleanup!  On April 13, volunteers all over the Anacostia Watershed were out in droves to do their part for a cleaner, healthier Anacostia River.  So much hard work goes into this event, and here at AWS we find ourselves awash in gratefulness to everyone who contributed to an amazing day:

Thank you, Site Leaders!  These hardworking folks have been planning with us since January, and their leadership and perserverance were the keystone to a fabulous event.

We would like to extend our sincerest gratitude to Pepco for their Gold Sponsorship of the event!  Thank you, Pepco!

Not only that, we would like to say thank you to the 97 new donors to the Anacostia Watershed Society who contributed in support of Earth Day!

Thank you, Government Partners!  From permits for access to trash pickup, to helping us find where the trash is, these folks on the ground ensure that the work we do is effective!

And thank you to everyone who spread the word about #AWSEarthDay!  Whether you were flyering or spreading the word on social media, you helped to make this a special day.
