Volunteers will join the Anacostia Watershed Society (AWS) for a Weed Wrangle Habitat Restoration Workday! During this workday volunteers will help AWS with their invasive plant control and revegetation efforts along the riverside area of Kingman Island at Langston Golf Course. By participating in this project you will not only have the opportunity to learn about invasive plants and the ecology of the Anacostia River, you will help to improve the habitat for wildlife and the water quality of the Anacostia River.
