• ENVIRONMENTAL EDUCATION

    “We do not work to save what we do not care about.” That is our catch phrase when talking about the Anacostia River and it’s true. ECC works to restore the Anacostia River but we cannot do it alone. It takes the whole community.

  • ENVIRONMENTAL LEADERSHIP

    ECC makes direct impact to the river but has a focus on something even greater, our cities’ young people. We provide youth 17-25 with real hands-on workforce development experience. We run AmeriCorps programs and offer service-learning opportunities for partners.

  • WATERSHED RESTORATION

    ECC works to have a direct impact on making the Anacostia River cleaner. We do this through a variety of on-going programs. An estimated 90% of the Anacostia’s wetlands have been destroyed. Wetlands are natural filters for a river system and vital for their health. ECC is fortunate to have a stretch of natural wetland in front of one of our education centers.

OUR PROGRAMS

Since 1990, Earth Conservation Corps has been focused in three key main areas of conservation, Restoration - Education - Leadership. We have always believed we could restore DC's Anacostia River and the community surrounding it through the power of education and leadership of it's most vulnerable citizens.

Our initial mission was to help those whom were endagered most by their environment which not only focused on the crime and dangers of the community, but also the neglect of a healthy environment brought on by systematic pollution and neglect.
