Join Rock Creek Conservancy, the National Park Service, and our friends at Open City 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 are happy to be joining the Alice Ferguson Foundation as part of their 31st Potomac River Watershed Cleanup. We hope to see you there!

Leader Contact: This site is still in need of a leader. If you are interested in hosting here, please contact email@example.com.
