WHAT: Ocean Conservancy is organizing an Anacostia River cleanup as the flagship event of its 32nd International Coastal Cleanup (ICC), the world’s largest single-day volunteer effort to remove trash from our beaches, waterways, lakes, rivers and parks. Last year, 330 volunteers recovered more than 2,500 pounds of trash from the Anacostia River, and this year is slated to be even bigger. The DC event, supported by Patagonia, will feature food, live music, and giveaways. Register to volunteer at www.DCCoastalCleanup.org.

For the second year in a row, volunteers will use the Clean Swell app (free for download on the App Store and Google Play) to contribute their citizen science data on the collected trash in real time to one of the world’s largest databases on ocean trash.

WHEN: Saturday, September 16, 2017
9:30 AM – 12:30 PM

WHERE: Kingman Island
Entrance at RFK Stadium Lot 6

A free shuttle service is available from the Stadium-Armory Station, accessible from the Orange, Blue, and Silver metro lines.

On Saturday, September 16, hundreds of Washington-area volunteers will head to Kingman Island to participate in the flagship event of Ocean Conservancy’s 32nd International Coastal Cleanup (ICC), the world’s largest single-day volunteer effort to remove trash from local waterways, beaches, lakes and rivers. Since the first ICC 32 years ago, more than 12 million volunteers have removed more than 220 million pounds of trash worldwide. (more…)

“I’m the current owner of 303 17th St SE – original home of the infamous prohibition-era Congressional bootlegger George Cassiday (also known as the Man in the Green Hat). We just put the house on the market last week. The backstory to this home and its infamous former owner is fascinating.

Here’s more on Cassiday’s exploits from the House of Representatives’ website.

And here’s more about the house’s history of raids by authorities.”

From Facebook:

“Join wildlife biologist, Lindsay Rohrbaugh from the Department of Energy and Environment for a special “bat walk” to discuss local DC bats.

Find out how bats navigate the night skies, avoiding predators and catching insects on the wing. Test out electronic bat detectors that pick up the ultrasonic calls that bats emit to navigate the darkness. Come see live bats fly around Kingman and Heritage Island in NE Washington, DC.
