    Volunteers will join AWS to sort trash that has been removed from the Nash Run trash trap into 27 categories. We will count the pieces of trash and measure the weight and volume for each category. The data we collect together will be used to educate the public and advocate for a better practice, such as the Bottle Deposit Bill. This is an excellent opportunity to learn about the trash challenges of the Anacostia and what is being done to address them!

    Join AWS for a Freshwater Mussel Restoration Workday at Kingman and Heritage Islands Park! On this workday we will focus on moving Eastern Elliptio mussels into the bottom cages in Heritage Marsh. In 2015, we started surveying the native species of freshwater mussels in the Anacostia River to understand their diversity and abundance. In 2018 we started a mussel propagation project partnering with the Harrison Lake National Fish Hatchery run by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service in Virginia collecting local broodstock from the Anacostia River. Volunteers are critical to keep this project going and to meet our goal of enhancing mussel populations to increase their water filtration capacity to help clean our river.
