Kenilworth Marsh called model for Anacostia River
WASHINGTON (AP) - District officials and environmentalists will be on the Anacostia River to celebrate what they say are calling one of the most successful wetlands restoration efforts on one of the nation's most polluted rivers.
Eleanor Holmes Norton, the district's representative in Congress, will appear Tuesday morning at the Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens along with officials from the Chesapeake Bay Foundation, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and other environmental groups.
The visit is part of National Estuaries Day celebrations. District officials say the 33-acre Kenilworth Marsh restoration completed in 1993 is a model of public-private cooperation involving the district's Department of Public Works, the National Park Service, the federal Environmental Protection Agency, and the Council of Governments.
