Anacostia Watershed Society: Wetland Workday

July 27, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Free

Note: This event is weather dependent.

Bladensburg Waterfront Park can be accessed by car, bus (Metrobus: T18, T14, F8), or bike trail. There is plenty of car parking.

Description: AWS is working to restore the wetlands to the shore of the Anacostia River. For this wetland workday we will focus on conducting tree maintenance in the Bladensburg Wetlands. This will involve removing weeds/invasive plant species and helping to repair tree shelters and fencing to allow the native trees we planted with volunteers this spring to continue to flourish.

Physical Requirements: This event will likely involve digging, lifting, bending, and walking for fair distances. Participants will be expected to wear boots or other closed-toed shoes for the duration of the event. The event is not suitable for children or those with health issues. If you think any of the physical requirements will be problematic, please let us know or consider joining another event.

Registration is required. Please register at least 2 days prior to the event date you chose to volunteer in order to receive additional information regarding proper clothing, etc.

For more information, contact Emily Castelli at ecastelli2@anacostiaws.org or call 301-699-6204 x103.
