Description: Volunteers will help the Anacostia Watershed Society to "Green the Green Line" by planting and maintaining trees at the Prince George's Plaza Metro Station! Planting trees will help to manage stormwater and filter surface water before it goes into the Anacostia River. Planting trees will also help to reduce sedimentation and provide wildlife habitat. By participating in this project, volunteers will help us to improve the water quality of the Anacostia River and the habitat for wildlife.
Physical Requirements: This event will likely involve digging, lifting, and bending. Participants will be expected to wear closed-toed shoes for the duration of the event. If you think any of the physical requirements will be problematic, please let us know or consider joining another event.
