Malini Suri, communications/research volunteer with the D.C. Environmental Network, did some digging into the goose situation around the Anacostia River's mouth.
Restoration work done to replant native plants in the river's wetlands has, at times, been decimated by these huge honkers.

The National Park Service has released the Anacostia Park Wetland and Resident Goose Management Plan/Environmental Impact Statement. It's open to public comment until Sept. 26.
