Over the past 400 years, the Anacostia watershed has changed from a lush, diverse ecosystem to one shaped by trade, agriculture and a rapidly expanding population. In the 1700s, forests were cleared to make way for crop cultivation, which caused sedimentation that clogged the river and ports.

Today, key species included the great blue heron, osprey, turtles, frogs, eels, snakes, beavers, fox, deer and bald eagles.
