Description: Let's get some trash and debris out of Anacostia Park! By popular demand, the Anacostia Watershed Society is organizing a cleanup of Anacostia Park. We'll keep up the community spirit that blossomed during the shutdown and we're hoping for 30 people to come and help us keep our park, and the Anacostia River, cleaner!
