General

  • Mission:
  • The mission of the Anacostia Watershed Society is to protect and restore the Anacostia River and its watershed communities by cleaning the water, recovering the shores, and honoring the heritage. Our ultimate goal is to make the Anacostia River swimmable and fishable, in compliance with the federal Clean Water Act.

  • History:
  • AWS was founded in 1989 by Robert Boone (a current Board Member) who witnessed the plight of the trash and sewage-contaminated Anacostia as he kayaked the river. He brought attention to our Nation's "forgotten river" by strongly advocating elected officials at all levels to clean the river and establishing the Anacostia Watershed Society as a non-profit organization more than 20 years ago. As a result, we have engaged more than 74,000 adults and youth in our programs to date. Together, we have planted 29,000 native plants and trees; removed 900 tons of trash and debris from the river (and 9,400 tires); provided Meaningful Watershed Education Experiences to 18,000 students and 400 teachers; and successfully won lawsuits, initiated programs, and advocated for policies, permits, codes, and actions that have resulted in a significant decrease in sewage, stormwater, and trash in the Anacostia River.
