Events from 01/25/19
- From 01/25/19 12:00 pm until 01/25/19 3:00 pmSince its inception in 1989, AWS staff and volunteers have removed tons of trash from the Anacostia River each year. Our Trash Trap cleanups have been a huge success in helping us to make progress towards our goal for a trash free Anacostia River. Our traps catch trash before it ends up in the River, but our staff can’t manage this trap alone. Volunteers are critical to our plan to collect trash and monitor our trash traps. At the event we will sort removed trash from our River Terrace trash trap, at the Bostwick House, into 13 categories. 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!
