Urban Waterways The Museum Academy Explores the Anacostia River with the Chesapeake Bay Foundation 28 July 2014 Susana Raab Leave a comment The April 20 voyage of the Sequoia along with the Anacostia Community Museum Academy aboard to learn about aquatic education. Looking at species of animals found along the river. Checking the water content. The view of Nationals Stadium from the Anacostia River. Learning to read maps depicting the Anacostia watershed. Near the Navy Yard along the Anacostia. Preparing the net for a catch of fish (and later a release) Surveying the wildlife along the shores of the Anacostia. No doubt headed to the Anacostia Community Boathouse, a great place to recreate in warm weather. Hauling in the catch. Examining the different species of fish found in the river. The haul. Holding the fish. Releasing the fish. Taking the boat for a ride with the Pennsylvania Ave John Phillips Souza Bridge in the background. Enjoying the speed. Day’s End. A great view of the War College from the Anacostia. Waving to other boaters and the USS Roosevelt, permanently parked along the Anacostia Riverfront Trail. The Anacostia Community Museum Academy enjoyed a day learning about urban river ecology with the Chesapeake Bay Foundation aboard the Sequoia.
