Rock Creek Conservancy
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!
You MUST register for this event: see registration link above
Volunteer Activity: Volunteers will remove trash from Broad Branch, a tributary of Rock Creek.
When: Saturday, April 13, 2019, from 11:00 AM-1:00 PM.
Where: Volunteers will meet at the intersection of Nevada Ave NW and 36th St NW right by the Broadbranch Park sign. There is limited street parking available, so we encourage volunteers to use public transportation, bike or carpool. Bus lines that run near the site include the E4, E6, and L2.
What to Wear: Please dress appropriately for the weather. Wear sturdy boots or sneakers, no sandals. We recommend long pants and sleeves to prevent contact with poison ivy. We also encourage volunteers to wear a hat.
What to Bring: Bring water. Tools and gloves will be provided. Feel free to bring your own tools and gloves if you have them. If you have trash grabbers or nets, please bring them. Students can earn SSL hours, but please bring needed forms.
