Event description

Description

Join the Alice Ferguson Foundation and Rock Creek Conservancy for our residential Adopt-A-Stream program!

This project will give interested leaders an opportunity to track levels of trash within DC's waterways utilizing the same resources and tools that researchers use to collect information on the Anacostia River's Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) for trash. This citizen-science collected data will then be shared with the District Department of Energy and Environment (DOEE) to help improve waterway quality in DC.

Interested leaders must sign up for the next Adopt-A-Stream Training on Saturday, October 12th from 12:30 pm - 2:30 pm at the Cleveland Park Neighborhood Library located in Washington, DC. Transit details are included below. At the training leaders will learn about trash issues in DC Waterways and how to effectively track and document trash levels.

Space is limited! Please RSVP here.
