The mission of the Anacostia Watershed Society is to protect and restore the Anacostia River by bringing partners and communities together to achieve a clean and safe river for the benefit of all living in its watershed and for future generations. The vision is to restore and sustain the Anacostia as a swimmable and fishable river for the health and well-being of all by 2025 and beyond. The Anacostia Watershed Society’s programs include environmental education, stewardship, recreation, and advocacy. Each year, they engage thousands of people through hands-on education programs, free weekly recreational opportunities on the river, and volunteer efforts to restore native habitat, remove trash, and prevent pollution in the river.
Washington Youth Garden (WYG) nurtures curious minds and healthy bodies by connecting youth to food, the land and each other. WYG began as a one-acre demonstration garden – now complete with fruits, vegetables and nature play features – on the grounds of the U.S. National Arboretum (USNA) in 1971. Their work has expanded to include school gardens across the District of Columbia. Through these “garden classrooms,” WYG offers hands-on environmental science and nutrition education to youth and families through four main program areas: SPROUT – field trips, Green Ambassadors – high school internships, Garden Science – school garden development and teacher training, and Family Garden Days. WYG is a program of the Friends of the National Arboretum (FONA), a 501(c)3 dedicated to enhancing support for educational, outreach and research programs that advance the mission of the U.S. National Arboretum.

The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.
To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at email@example.com
Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
