Re-Imagining The Anacostia River

For decades, the Anacostia River was a polluted and unsightly tributary with a bad reputation. Today, as pricey condos and offices rise on its banks, a new ballpark draws fans to its shoreline, and kayakers and bikers travel its length, the 8-mile river is in the midst of a makeover. We explore the effort to re-imagine the Anacostia and examine the environmental challenges that persist.
