Events from 09/07/22
From 09/07/22 9:00 am until 09/07/22 12:00 pmJoin AWS and NLT for a fun vegetation survey along the riverside area of Kingman Island at Langston Golf Course. Participants will help AWS and NLT identify plant species of all kinds using iNaturalist and measuring trees.
From 09/07/22 10:00 am until 09/07/22 12:00 pmVolunteers will help the Anacostia Watershed Society (AWS) to collect bags containing wild rice (Zizania aquatica) by canoe and waders from the wetlands by Langston Golf Course! On this workday we will collect the bags by clipping the seedhead stalks. The seed collected in the bags will be used for propagation in the Anacostia River in the spring of 2023 through mudballing (seeding) and the production of seedlings that will be transplanted in the river once they reach a suitable size. This event may require wading in the mud/water in warm weather conditions and paddling by canoe. Sunglasses are a plus to protect your eyes from the spiky wild rice seed. Bring plenty of water to keep yourself hydrated.
