Anacostia Riverkeeper works to protect and restore the Anacostia River for all who live, work, and play in the watershed
Anacostia Riverkeeper works to protect and restore the Anacostia River for all who live, work, and play in the watershed. We rely on law and advocacy to improve water policy. We deploy green infrastructure to improve water quality. We create meaningful encounters with the river for all citizens in order to open opportunities for enjoyment of the Anacostia River.
Anacostia Riverkeeper is committed to breaching barriers and creating access points that allow meaningful encounters with the Anacostia. We want you to share our passion for the river today and see the potential it holds for tomorrow.
