Anacostia River Field Study Trip
Two weeks ago I found myself on a small boat cruising down the Anacostia River. not a typical weekend day for me but a pleasant surprise nonetheless! The OWL Scholars and I were guests of the Anacostia Watershed Society. We had the pleasure of being escorted on an educational tour by our captain, Aroni.
This fall the kids in DC decided to focus on Sustainable Development Goal #14: Life Below Water. We have been researching the local waterways and they are learning how important clean water is to the fauna and flora of an ecosystem. Clean up and restorative work includes preventing pollution, using natural filters like mussels and planting native species.
