Project: Join the Anacostia Watershed Society for an exciting evening exploring the river at night at Langston Golf Course on a guided evening wildlife tour of Kingman Lake and the adjacent riparian forests. People with waders (optional) will join an "aquatic group" exploring the east tidal channel at low tide to see the aquatic critters like eels and other fish, crayfish, freshwater mussels, and of course birds and mammals (otters!). Maybe we will hear coyotes howling... Another group a "riparian forest group" will explore the adjacent woods, ponds and golf course looking for other critters. Depending on weather conditions the amphibians and reptiles may be very active as well.
