Watershed Wednesday Happy Hour Special Event

On October 18, 2022, the Clean Water Act turned 50 years old!

Please join us for a special interview-style Watershed Wednesday as we look back at the first fifty years of the Clean Water Act and consider what the next fifty might have in store.  The Clean Water Act is one of the nation's most important environmental laws, and its impacts on rivers and wetlands across the country and in the Anacostia watershed have been profound.

We welcome Bob Irvin, who will sit down to chat with Chris Williams, Anacostia Watershed Society president.

Bob Irvin is an avid angler with a strong personal interest in clean rivers and streams. His long career in conservation as a U.S. Department of Justice lawyer, staff attorney for the National Wildlife Federation, counsel to the U.S. Senate Environment and Public Works Committee, head of conservation at Defenders of Wildlife, and recently retired President and CEO of American Rivers has left him long experience, deep expertise, and wide-ranging perspectives on the history, influence and possible future of the Clean Water Act.

Please RSVP for the zoom link.
