Earth Day Recap


CSX Corporation joined 2,000 volunteers in a massive cleanup of the Anacostia River and its tributaries as part of a 25-site metro-wide service event in honor of Earth Day. Volunteers removed thousands of pounds of trash and debris from neighborhoods, streams and the Anacostia River. A celebration at Bladensburg Waterfront Park following the clean up, included a free picnic lunch, live music, guest speakers and exhibits.

The Anacostia Waterway was the second of its kind in the country to be designated as impaired under the Clean Water Act by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency due to refuse that begins as neighborhood litter and washes into the river when it rains.

Six hundred volunteers, including 30 CSX employees and their families, gathered at Bladensburg Waterfront Park in Maryland to rid the eastern branch of the Potomac River of trash and other debris, which have plagued the waterway for more than two centuries. CSX served as the platinum sponsor for the event hosted by the Anacostia Watershed Society.

"Having CSX as a partner is a game changer," said Jim Foster, AWS president. "They are a great support. We need their leadership to bring others into the fold to support our causes. This is just the beginning of a great, long-term relationship."

John Wright, Baltimore Division manager and AWS board member, said CSX echoed those sentiments, saying, "CSX tries to live the core value—people make a difference." The rail industry's ties to Bladensburg span centuries. In 1833, construction began in Baltimore on the 32-mile-long Washington line of the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad. In 1835, the first railroad line to Washington, D.C., which passed directly through Bladensburg, was completed. Today, Bladensburg is a small but busy urban community with large-scale industrial activity.

CSX Corporation, based in Jacksonville, Fla., is one of the nation's leading transportation companies, connecting customers to ports, distribution centers and markets across the eastern United States. CSX created Beyond Our Rails as an extension of our organization—displaying our commitment to Safety, Community, the Environment and Wellness through grass-roots volunteerism and focused corporate giving—actively engaging employees and non-profit organizations in programs and initiatives designed to make the world a better place.

The Anacostia River Cleanup, which draws large numbers of volunteers, makes an immediate impact with the removal of much debris and lasting benefit by inspiring people to protect the river year-round. The Anacostia Watershed Society is dedicated to cleaning the water, recovering the shoreline, and honoring the heritage of the Anacostia River and its watershed communities in Washington, DC and Maryland. Since 1989, AWS has worked to conserve and protect the land and water of the Anacostia River and its watershed communities through educational programs, stewardship efforts, and advocacy projects. AWS works to make the Anacostia River and its tributaries swimmable and fishable as required by the Clean Water Act. For more information about AWS, visit anacostiaws.org
