Join the University of Miami Alumni of Washington, D.C. (D.C. 'Canes), friends, and neighbors in cleaning-up our shared backyard this April 13th! Watts Branch is a beautiful stream stemming from the Anacostia River that has suffered from significant trash build-up. Be part of the team making the stream and surrounding park land safe, healthy, and clear of waste for people and wildlife to enjoy and live in. This event is hosted in conjunction with the University of Miami's Alumni Day of Service, but all are welcome to attend! Hope to see you there!
