Join Rock Creek Conservancy and Tenleytown Main Street for the 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.

Where: Volunteers will meet at Meet at the small triangular park at Wisconsin Ave NW and Fessenden St NW, Washington, DC. Volunteers will clean up the park and then continue north up Wisconsin Ave, cleaning as they go, and will finally end at the Tenleytown Circle.
