1. Experience the great outdoors in the heart of the Nation's Capital
2. Get exercise, burn calories, feel great
3. Meet neighbors and new friends
4. High school students earn community service hours
5. Help protect the Anacostia and Potomac Rivers from run-off pollution
6. Commemorate the 150th anniversary of the Civil War by restoring the woods around the remains of Fort Carroll and Fort Grebel
7. Feel patriotic in the presence of two Bald Eagle nests
8. Rescue majestic native trees from invasive English Ivy
