On Wednesday, 10/4, our team worked with the Anacostia Watershed Society as part of our Week of Service activities. We spent the morning at Heurich Park planting new trees, clearing out overgrowth, and generally cleaning up the area. Our main goals were to introduce biodiversity to the park’s ecosystem and to ensure the continued health of the trees/plants that other volunteers have introduced in recent years. At the end of the trip the representative from Anacostia Watershed Society shared some interesting facts about the Anacostia River and told us about some of the activities the organization sponsors – including free boat tours! http://www.anacostiaws.org/anacostia-river-explorers
This event was organized and lead by members of Hanover’s Green Team!
