Maintenance of the BWP West Grove

Our work Monday continues the efforts of our partner groups to enhance the riparian area of the Anacostia River. Over the last 10 years, under the direction of the Anacostia Watershed Society, we have conducted many events in the BWP West Grove including the banks of Quincy Run. We will focus on the 300 trees planted by AWS north of the Bladensburg Wetland and west of the Riverwalk Trail.

View the video below for a full description of our work plan.
