Have you seen a white-tailed deer recently? White-tailed deer are all over Anacostia park and the Anacostia bike trail. They are known for their white tail that is exposed as a warning to others when a threat is near. White-tailed deer usually live 4.5 years and can become as large as 250 pounds. They have excellent night vision and smell, however they do not see well during the day. They can travel up to 40 miles per hour. Next time you see a deer in the park, take a moment to appreciate their beauty and athleticism!

Did you have company stay with you over the holidays? Were they good house guests? Our resident beavers allow muskrats to cohabitate with them in the winter. They have a simliar diet of roots and stems although muskrats will also eat fish, insects and amphibians. Winter is a great time to come out to Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens and spot muskrats and beavers!

We’ve made a list, and checked it tw(ice), so take a look at our winter driving advice!

Did you know that as the temperature drops so does your vehicle’s battery power and tire pressure? Add that to slippery roads and reduced visibility due to snow or fog and even the most experienced driver can have difficulties driving in winter conditions. Before hitting the road this winter:

❄️ Check the weather before leaving your house

❄️ Plan your route to and within the park

❄️ Check park alerts and closures for the most up to date park conditions

❄️ Pack emergency supplies in case you become stranded

❄️ Check tire chain requirements of the park

❄️ Prepare your vehicle for winter

What are some of your best winter driving tips?

Do you ever look at a street corner and remember what it looked like before something was built there?
Or know a neighborhood that used to be a field?
Or do you simply wish to go back in time to skate to the Go-Go music at the Anacostia Skating Pavilion?
Would you rather go back to the 19th century when the Navy Yard was a busy shipyard, Bladensburg was a port town, the river was deep enough for larger ships, and Anacostia Park was natural wetlands?
If you could travel back in time where and when would you go? #PretendtobeaTimeTraveller

#OTD Doris Miller Displays Heroism at Pearl Harbor

When Japan attacked the US Naval Base, Pearl Harbor, on December 7, 1941, Doris “Dorie” Miller was a 22-year-old mess attendant on the USS West Virginia at Pearl Harbor. Miller was collecting laundry at 6:00 AM when Japan attacked Pearl Harbor and an alarm sounded on the USS West Virginia.

According to Navy Rear Adm. John Fuller, "Miller went topside, carried wounded on his shoulders, made several trips up and down, wading through waist-deep water, oil-slicked decks, struggling uphill on slick decks." Next Miller took control of a .50-caliber anti-aircraft machine gun and fired it until it was spent. Miller said, "It wasn't hard…I just pulled the trigger and she worked fine. I had watched the others with these guns. I guess I fired her for about 15 minutes. I think I got one of those [Japanese] planes. They were diving pretty close to us."

Despite Miller’s valiant efforts the USS West Virginia was damaged beyond repair and slowly sank. For his bravery, the Navy presented Miller with the Navy Cross in May 1942. In 1943, Miller would die aboard the USS Liscome Bay when a Japanese torpedo struck his ship. Miller was awarded the Purple Heart posthumously for his actions that day. A Navy aircraft carrier is now named after him.

"Be careful of the icy patch!" - Emily ‘Ma’ Bear

When winter comes around, it brings with it the opportunity to experience parks in a whole new way. Colder temperatures can present its own set of risks and can make your trip challenging if you are unprepared. Whether you are hiking, driving, camping or visiting friends and family, don't let winter weather take you by surprise.

Did we mention the icy patch? Use extra caution when in a park. During the winter, trail surfaces may be covered with snow or ice making them extremely hazardous. If you don’t have the proper footwear or gear, or if the trail becomes too difficult to travel on, your waka waka may turn into a wert der ferk bork bork plop!! (You may need to turn around.) There are other beautiful locations at the park that you can enjoy. Oh, one more thing. Careful of the icy patch!

For weather updates and park alerts be sure and visit a park website before heading out!
