River of Resilience: A Journey from Headwaters to Confluence on the Anacostia River

Readers with an interest in history and photography may especially enjoy River of Resilience, a series of story maps narrating the history of the Anacostia River, located in the mid-Atlantic United States near Washington, D.C. Presented in nine interactive chapters, this story map takes visitors on a visual journey through shifts in both landscape and time. It begins with an introductory overview before moving on to the spring-fed headwaters of the Anacostia River's northwest branch, which was once home to Rachel Carson, author of Silent Spring. From there, River of Resilience travels downstream to the confluence of the Anacostia and the Potomac, visiting numerous people and places (both historical and contemporary) along the way. This resource features beautiful photography, video, and text by Krista Schlyer, an award-winning photographer and writer who is a Senior Fellow in the International League of Conservation Photographers. River of Resilience is an adaptation of Schlyer's book River of Redemption: Almanac of Life on the Anacostia, published in November 2018.
