  • Small wonders: Beads uncovered by WSSI archeologists at a slave dwelling are on display in The Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History's Objects of Wonder exhibit. These petite artifacts were recovered thanks to WSSI's use of best practices (in this case, waterscreening soils through smaller mesh) when standard techniques may not have detected such small items. 

Why let a beautiful, restored stream go unexplored? See how WSSI & local organizations encourage adventure with the annual Reston Kids' Trout Fishing Day! Reston's streams - once eyesores with eroding banks and toppling trees - have been restored and are now a community retreat for fun and good ole fashioned family bonding.
