The opportunity to volunteer with the Anacostia Watershed Society provided chapter members and their families an opportunity to explore a hidden gem in our region. The DC Chapter has in previous years participated in local Earth Day events, other local clean-up events and are ardent supporters of the research done by the School of Agriculture and Environmental Sciences at North Carolina A&T State University in Greensboro. As alumni of an 1890 land-grant institution, the DC Aggies are well aware of the importance of engaging in sustainable practices.
