Despite the threat of Winter Storm Stella dumping up to a foot of snow on the DC area, and its disappointing aftermath, the thought on many people’s minds this week is tinted green with the arrival of the St. Patrick’s Day holiday. The Capitals, too, are thinking green, with their own week-long celebration entitled Green Week, which will run March 13-17.
The Thursday March 16th game versus the Nashville Predators is the Capitals’ St. Patrick’s Day celebration game. The team will be wearing special green jerseys during warm-ups, as well as use green tape on their sticks. The jerseys and sticks, along with special green pucks, will be autographed and up for auction. Proceeds will benefit the Anacostia Watershed Society. You can bid on those items now via Handbid.

Tonight against the Minnesota Wild, the Capitals will also be celebrating Go Green Night, which focuses on how Caps fans can be more environmentally friendly.

The mission of the Anacostia Watershed Society is to protect and restore the Anacostia River and its watershed communities by cleaning the water, recovering the shores, and honoring the heritage. The organization’s ultimate vision is to restore the Anacostia to a fishable and swimmable river for the health and enjoyment of all community members. The Anacostia Watershed Society was founded in 1989 by a small group of concerned individuals who decided that the environmental needs of the Anacostia River and its watershed communities required serious attention. Over the past 20 years, its staff and programming efforts have expanded significantly to encompass efforts in environmental education, stewardship, and recreation, as well as engaging the community through public affairs.
