All are invited to the Wednesday Happy Hour for the Anacostia Watershed Society. 

Join us for this month's Watershed Wednesday Happy Hour! We will hear from Julie Lawson, a former AWS staff member and recently appointed Director of the new Mayor's Office of the Clean City.

Julie first got involved in litter reduction efforts as a volunteer for the Surfrider Foundation and went on to found Trash Free Maryland, where she helped to secure a ban on Styrofoam containers. She has spent time trawling for trash in the Chesapeake Bay and will share her experiences on what she found and what you can do to help.

Jazz at the Citizen: Joe Herrera Duo

This week we welcome trumpeter Joe Herrera.

From DCist:

"A native of Yuma, Arizona, Herrera began his musical journey at age 10, when he wanted to play the saxophone, but instead started on the trumpet because his father already had one. He became serious about music as a freshman in high school and would often raid the record collection his band director kept. Classic players like Miles Davis, Freddie Hubbard and John Coltrane caught the young musician's ear, and from there, his interest took off. After studies at Mesa Community College and Arizona State University, as well as stints as a musician on cruise ships, he began working regularly in and around Phoenix. An opportunity then arose for Herrera to move to D.C., which he did in 2003. He formed his first group, Joe Herrera's Landscaping Crew, in 2005, which featured area regulars Matt RippetoeBobby Muncy and Anthony Pirog. Things have only gone up from there.

Every Thursday night we host JAZZ at the CITIZEN - featuring some of D.C.'s best young players.
