Restoring Biodiversity

Watershed Restoration Program

ECC works to have a direct impact on making the Anacostia River cleaner.  We do this through a variety of on-going programs.  

River Trash Traps 

One way to make the water cleaner is to get the trash out.  The Anacostia suffers from stormwater run-off.  This means that every time it rains the rain water brings all of the trash from the street not to mention all of the chemicals and washes them down the storm drains and directly into the river.  ECC works with multiple partners in the watershed to maintain five different trash traps along the river.   Our team removes the trash that collects after a rainfall.  

Wetland Restoration 

An estimated 90% of the Anacostia’s wetlands have been destroyed.  Wetlands are natural filters for a river system and vital for their health.  ECC is fortunate to have a stretch of natural wetland in front of one of our education centers.  ECC has been working to maintain what is there and continues to restore the area with native wetland plants.
