About Us

About the Anacostia Watershed Society

Since its founding in 1989, the Anacostia Watershed Society has worked to protect and restore the Anacostia River and its watershed communities. Over the past 30 years, AWS has grown and developed from a small group of concerned individuals into an award-winning non-profit, with an annual budget of $3 million, that is deeply involved in a cause that affects many different Washington, D.C. metro area communities within the 176 square-mile watershed.

As part of its mission, the Anacostia Watershed Society works with schools and students throughout Washington, D.C. and Montgomery and Prince George’s counties, engaging them in an experience that educates them through hands-on service and allows them to play a part in the continuing improvement of the Anacostia River watershed. In addition, AWS serves as a voice for the river; advocating for and actively involving itself in policies, actions, and programs that protect its ecological health, improve water quality, and work to mitigate the negative effects of stormwater, bacteria, and trash.

In addition to employment opportunities, volunteers are always needed to assist with various outdoor projects including tree planting, river/trash clean up, invasive plant removal, and wetland planting. Professionals with experience in non-profit fundraising and/or communications work are welcome to help with the identification and solicitation of funding sources, grants management, and the development of strategic information and fundraising campaigns.
