      The District Department of the Environment’s Aquatic Resources Education Center is located just minutes from Capitol Hill in Anacostia Park. This aquarium and education center houses over 30 species of aquatic life from the three watersheds within the District of Columbia. Visitors can learn about the city’s aquatic resources by taking a tour led by one of our resident fish and wildlife biologists. The staff also delivers aquatic education programs to school and community groups seeking experiential field trips that meet school science standards.
