Roots to Rivers: How Trees Improve our Waterways

July 10, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm EDT


Join Casey Trees and DC Department of Parks and Recreation to learn how plants and people can protect our District’s waterways. 

The Sustainable DC plan set the goal to achieve 40% tree canopy in the District, and to have fishable, swimmable rivers by 2032. How do we bring these two goals together for a healthier environment?

Join policymakers and community leaders to explore the intersection between trees, stormwater runoff and stream health.

You will learn about your local watershed, the current health of the Anacostia and Potomac, how you can track their health and what ecosystem services trees provide to improve our watershed. A healthy urban forest means a healthy watershed.


  • No specific skills required.
  • Register in advance. Space is limited. If your plans change prior to the event, please update your registration status.
