  • From 04/04/20 9:30 am until 04/04/20 1:00 pm
    Volunteers will help AWS with a Freshwater Mussel Restoration Workday at 2 different sites throughout the Anacostia River Watershed! 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 a mussel 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.
