Cleanup Event

Join Rock Creek Conservancy for our 11th Annual Rock Creek Extreme Cleanup. Volunteers will clean-up the lands, banks, tributaries, and waters of Rock Creek throughout Maryland and D.C.

Our goal is total stream cleanup of Rock Creek and its tributaries, the parks connected to Rock Creek, and the neighborhoods near Rock Creek where trash originates. We work closely with the National Park Service and Montgomery County Parks and are happy to be joining the Alice Ferguson Foundation as part of their 31st Potomac River Watershed Cleanup. We hope to see you there!

What: Volunteers will help clean trash and litter from the Pinehurst Branch before it ends up in Rock Creek.

Date and Time: Saturday, April 13, 2019 from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm

Volunteers will meet at the intersection of Beech St. NW and Oregon Ave. Street parking is available, but volunteers are encouraged to use public transportation.
