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 Normanstone Creek tributary before it ends up in Rock Creek.
Date and Time: Saturday, April 13, 2019 from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm
Where: 2841 Normanstone Drive NW. Volunteers will meet near the Normanstone trailhead close to the intersection of Rock Creek Drive NW and Normanstone Dr. NW. The location is a short 10-minute walk from the Woodley Park/Adams Morgan Metro stop and street parking is available if volunteers wish to drive.
