Washington, DC 20018

Date: Sunday, March 9, 2008

Time: 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm

Presentations will include:


An exploration of the history of the Anacostia River, dating from

dinosaurs to ballparks and continuing economic development efforts.

Jim Connolly, Executive Director of the Anacostia Watershed Society,

will be sharing video slides and stories of his organizations

efforts to restore the Anacostia. The Woodridge Library and the

adjacent Langdon Park are located within the Hickey Run Watershed, a

tributary of the Anacostia.


For those unable to attend this meeting, don't miss our next month's
