Join us at LAB’s “PARKLET” this Friday, September 15, at The Yards (Tingey Street SE — between 3rd & 4th Streets SE, Washington, DC). The LAB Parklet will be open to the public 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
LAB’s 2017 Park(ing) Day installation combines plant material and reclaimed bottles from the Anacostia River in an effort to draw attention to pressure on local waterways created by the city’s Combined Sewer System. The sculptural installation abstractly illustrates existing pollution levels in the Anacostia River and the role that vegetation, green infrastructure, and the work of local environmental non-profits play in mitigating stormwater runoff and contributing to a healthier waterway.
