AWS Calendar

  • From 02/22/20 10:00 am until 02/22/20 2:00 pm
    Volunteers will help AWS with a Freshwater Mussel Deployment at 3 different sites throughout the Anacostia River Watershed! In 2015, we started surveying the native species of freshwater mussels in the Anacostia River to understand their diversity and abundance. In 2018 we started a mussel propagation project partnering with a mussel hatchery run by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service in Virginia collecting local broodstock from the Anacostia River. Volunteers are critical to keep this project going and to meet our goal of enhancing mussel populations to increase their water filtration capacity to help clean our river.
  • From 03/14/20 10:00 am until 03/14/20 1:00 pm
    At 26 Grant Cir NW, Washington, DC 20011, USA Categories: Work Days and Clean Ups
    Volunteers will join staff from the Anacostia Watershed Society to plant native grasses and perennials in two new bioretention planters at Saint Gabriel Catholic Church, a church in the Anacostia River Watershed. Bioretention planters treat and manage stormwater runoff, so by participating in this project, volunteers will help AWS to reduce stormwater and pollutants from going into the Anacostia River.

    At 61st St NE & Banks Pl NE, Washington, DC 20019 Categories: Work Days and Clean Ups
    The Anacostia Watershed Society is working with a coalition of partners to restore habitat along Watts Branch in Marvin Gaye Park. DC Department of Parks and Recreation, DC Natives, and a dedicated group of community gardeners are all working to improve this space by creating a food forest and meadow habitat adjacent to the community garden. Join us on March 21st as we continue to work together to restore and enhance this habitat. Work will include mulching, removing invasives, installing signage, etc.

    Volunteers will join staff from the Anacostia Watershed Society to plant native shrubs, grasses, and perennials in a new rain garden and Bayscape area at St. Paul's Rock Creek cemetery, a cemetery in the Anacostia River Watershed. The rain garden was installed in December 2019 and is a part of an effort to reduce the amount of stormwater that enters the Anacostia River and eventually the Chesapeake Bay. By participating in this project, volunteers will help AWS to reduce stormwater and pollutants from going into the Anacostia River!
