Youth Group

The Earth Conservation Corps is a nonprofit Youth Development and Environmental service organization. ECC use the challenge and promise of restoring the Anacostia River to engage unemployed community youth for a transformative volunteer year of environmental action and community service.

The ECC started in the early 1990s when a group of unemployed youth volunteered to start cleaning up the Anacostia River and its tributaries.

A small, but highly trained staff provides these year round volunteers with the leadership skills and environmental expertise to empower them to engage thousands of school children and adults in the restoration of the Anacostia River.

Programs include working with raptors, monitoring bald eagle nests, planting trees, fishing programs for children, and restoring wooden boats. The group has its headquarters at 2000 Half Street SW, and an environmental education center at the Pumphouse at Diamond Teague Park a few blocks up the Anacostia near the Navy Yard.
