This once-forgotten river is becoming the center of a movement to restore it as a public asset in the nation's capital. The Anacostia protects unique eco-systems: riverine tidal swamp forests, tidal emergent wetlands and the adjacent non-tidal wetlands that protect outstanding wetland plant communities and provide habitat to a plethora of fish and other animals.
