Help cleanup Rock Creek Park on Saturday

Help cleanup Rock Creek Park, our fantastic local resource! The Rock Creek Conservancy is organizing a cleanup on Saturday. Help them out! Sounds like a great time to enjoy some good weather in park too.
On April 5Rock Creek Conservancy -- with your help­ -- will have cleanup events at 70+ sites all over the Rock Creek watershed. In the past five years, volunteers have collected a combined total of over 12,000 bags of litter, 60 tons of junk, 800 tires, and 35,000 plastic bags. As a result of these efforts, many locations are much cleaner than before. This will be the sixth annual cleanup, and we need your help to make it the best ever. We want you alongside us this April.

Who: You
What: Our goal is a total stream cleanup of Rock Creek and its tributaries, the parks connected to Rock Creek, and the neighborhoods near Rock Creek where trash originates.

When: Saturday, April 5, 9:00am - 12:00pm
Why: Our goal is a total stream cleanup of Rock Creek and its tributaries, the parks connected to Rock Creek, and the neighborhoods near Rock Creek where trash originates.
