On Monday, January 20th, Student Conservation Association (SCA), in sponsorship with American Express and Southwest Airlines, teamed up with National Park Service (NPS) to serve at Anacostia National Park. In honor of MLK Jr. Day, over 150 community volunteers came out to help remove litter from the park shoreline and lands. In total, volunteers cleared nearly 16 acres of park land, more than 1,100 feet of shoreline, and accumulated over 150 trash bags.Read more
