As part of the Anacostia Watershed Society's free monthly Watershed Wednesday happy hour series, Julie Lawson, the recently appointed Director of the new Mayor's Office of the Clean City, will discuss new initiatives being implemented by the city to reduce litter and its effect on our rivers and streams.

Julie first got involved in litter reduction efforts as a volunteer for the Surfrider Foundation and went on to found Trash Free Maryland, where she helped to secure a ban on Styrofoam containers. She has spent time trawling for trash in the Chesapeake Bay and will share her experiences on what she found and what you can do to help. Many thanks to Petworth Citizen for generously hosting us this month in their Reading Room!
