Description: Volunteers will be working alongside AWS staff to support our Rice Rangers educational program. During these programs students plant wild rice seedlings in the marshes of the Anacostia while learning about wetland habitat and restoration. Only adults may volunteer for these programs. This project involves walking on uneven services while bending and lifting in the marshes. You will get muddy, but have a great time working alongside some enthusiastic children!

Clothing and Supplies: Closed-toed shoes are required and long pants are recommended. Please wear sunscreen and bring a re-usable water bottle and a snack. Water coolers will be provided.

Note: The restroom on site is a port-o-potty.

REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED. Please register at least 2 days prior to the event date you chose to volunteer in order to receive additional information regarding proper clothing, etc.
