    Volunteers will help AWS with a Restoration Workday at Kingman Marsh! AWS is working to restore the wetlands to the shore of the Anacostia River. This Restoration Workday will involve removing fencing and cleaning up trash in the wetlands. Some of the work is done by standing in the river while wearing waders, so this is a truly unique experience! We will provide all necessary training, tools, and supplies for this event.

    Volunteers will help AWS to sort trash removed from the Nash Run Trash Trap into 13 categories; plastic bottles, plastic grocery bags, food wrappers, Styrofoam food containers, other Styrofoam products, recreational balls, other plastics, glass bottles, aluminum cans, tires, treated lumber, other non-plastics, and large items. We will count the pieces of trash and measure the weight and volume for each category. This is an excellent opportunity to learn about the trash challenges of the Anacostia and what is being done to address them!

    Volunteers will help AWS to sort trash removed from our River Terrace Trash Trap into 13 categories, count the pieces of trash and measure the weight and volume for each category. The data you help us collect will be used to educate the public and advocate for a better practice, such as the Bottle Deposit Bill. This is an excellent opportunity to learn about the trash challenges of the Anacostia and what is being done to address them!
