Bioswale Work Sessions

The bioswale is the grassy buffer between the boathouse and the river that protects the Anacostia River by filtering and diverting runoff from the land. Our work in the bioswale maintains its native species such as bald cypress, red twig dogwood, rose mallow, switchgrass, blue flag iris, milkweed, and sweetbay magnolia. More information on the bioswale home page.
