In fall of 2020, over one 8-week period, a F-KEAQ/Student Conservation Association fall crew will work to maintain the river trail which directly connects with the Anacostia Riverwalk Trail, and maintain interior park trails that are receiving increased use as a result of the ART opening. Trail work includes maintaining all trails with proper surface materials, incorporation of landscape elements (berns, plantings, etc) in the park to ensure proper use of trails and safety of visitors, removing invasive plants along park trails and stabilizing pond banks (the trailways) with native plants; all of which ensure safe and easy trail passage. Crews may also install signage and bike racks. AnSCA Team Leader will work with F-KEAQ and NPS leaders to make sure that all projects meet compliance and that all partners are involved.

We estimate the project will resurface over 5,000 feet of trail and stabilize 1,000 feet of pond banks.
