Anacostia River Trail Dedication

On Friday, November 4, 2011, an incredible numbers of government officials came to Bladensburg Waterfront Park (BWP) to cut the ribbon on the latest segment of the Anacostia River hiker/biker trail.  The Northwest and Northeast Branch trails used to meet and then end at BWP, but a new 1.5 mile section has opened that runs nearly to the DC border.  This is part of a plan to create a full Anacostia River trail that connects Maryland to DC!  (DC is building north along National Park Service land on the river and we hope the trails will be connected within two years.)  I think this trail will be a game changer for perceptions of the Anacostia River, and for commuting patterns in the northeastern quadrant of the metropolitan area.

In the meantime, the additional trail section dedicated today deads ends into a beautiful wetland restoration project that is full of wildlife - beavers, red fox, eight point bucks, and bald eagles have all been spotted using this natural resource.  Join AWS and bike or hike down to the end of trail to watch some wildlife!

Everything composed made a bunch of sense. However, think about this, suppose you typed a catchier title? I am not suggesting your content isn't solid., however suppose you added a post title to possibly grab people's attention? I mean Reply to comment | anacostiaws.org is kinda vanilla. You could glance at Yahoo's home page and watch how they create post titles to grab viewers to open the links. You might try adding a video or a picture or two to grab people excited about everything've written. Just my opinion, it might make your blog a little bit more interesting.
