  1. As you may know, Community Forklift is located in the Anacostia Trails Heritage Area. We are proud of the rich history, strong sense of community, and beautiful natural recreation sites in this area. We are also glad that the area is becoming a regional hub for green industry & sustainable businesses! Anyhow, we thought you might like to know about upcoming ATHA events.
