Our mission is:
To empower our endangered youth to reclaim the Anacostia River, their communities and their lives.
Since 1989, Earth Conservation Corps has successfully provided disadvantaged youth with the opportunity to develop professional skills while restoring the Anacostia River and their communities. Today, these youth are clearing the Anacostia River and its tributaries of trash and debris, rebuilding the shore line, creating community access trails, and planting trees. They are also mobilizing over 5,000 youth and adults and leading in hands-on environmental education and service opportunities.
