Signs, Signs, Everywhere There's Signs


The Anacostia River at the Commodore Joshua Barney Bridge in Bladensburg, MD

The Maryland State Highway Administration has been hard at work placing Anacostia River and Tributary signs thoughout the watershed from the Beltway to Bladensburg and everywhere in between.  You should see them on major state and interstate roads where they cross a particuar tributary.  Here are two that highlight the rivers main tribuataries:


The Northwest Branch crossing at Route 1 in North Brentwood/Hyattsville, MD


The Northeast Branch crossing at Alt US Route 1 in Edmonston/Hyattsville, MD

The Anacostia Watershed Society is excited to see these signs out in the wild.  It's important for the public to know that the river is affected by an area much larger than its tidal boundaries.  These signs will go a long way toward educating people about their connection to the regions rivers not to mention the Chesapeake Bay.  

It might seem like a relatively simple project, but a lot of thought and planning by a lot of groups and individuals went into making it happen.  We'd especially like to recognize Ken Yetman from the Maryland Department of Natural Resources for the key role he played in the projects success.

So, get out there and take some pictures of your own, and then post them on our Facebook page.  Let's all spread the word!

Hmm it looks like your site ate my first comment (it was super long) so I guess I'll just sum it up what I had written and say, I'm thoroughly enjoying your blog. I as well am an aspiring blog blogger but I'm still new to the whole thing. Do you have any recommendations for newbie blog writers? I'd genuinely appreciate it.

Hello would you mind sharing which blog platform you're working with? I'm planning to start my own blog in the near future but I'm having a difficult time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I'm looking for something unique. P.S Sorry for being off-topic but I had to ask!
