Even though millions of people visit Washington D.C every year and the Anacostia River hugs our nation’s capital, the Anacostia River is commonly called "D.C.'s forgotten river." This past spring, this 8.4 mile river was deemed “one of the most polluted waterways in the nation.” According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), more than 20,000 tons of trash and debris enter the Anacostia's waters each year.
United By Blue will be meeting in the Anacostia Park “Section F” parking lot (2223 Oklahoma Avenue Northeast, Washington D.C.), be on the lookout for our United By Blue flags. We will have breakfast, lunch, supplies, fun and games waiting for our volunteers. Need any reason to help out? Watch this!
