Park Landscaping

block Anacostia Community Park

The Earth Conservation Corps is working to coordinate landscaping of the park, including the planting of trees, shrubs and a community garden. The group will involve local youth in the project as part of a training initiative focusing on urban natural resource management, environmental restoration and site design. Educational signage will be developed for the site and tours and workshops will be conducted to demonstrate how the restoration effort can be replicated at other community locations. The community park will create an opportunity to connect area residents with environmental restoration in an important river watershed of the Bay.

Amount Funded: $18,600.00

Start Date: 06/30/2000
