Rock Creek Conservancy
Join Rock Creek Sports Club, Rock Creek Conservancy, and Montgomery County Parks as we remove trash from Rock Creek near Boundary Bridge.
Trash and litter negatively affect the health of a watershed, along with the organisms -we humans included- that live there.
We invite you to join Rock Creek Sports Club to help keep this section of Rock Creek clean. We hope to see you there!

Volunteer Activity: Volunteers from Rock Creek Sports Club will help remove trash from the area around Boundary Bridge in Rock Creek Park.
When: Saturday, November 2, 2019 from 9:00 AM- 11:00 AM.
Where: The Boundary Bridge parking lot, Beach Drive. Take East-West Highway (Route 410) east from Connecticut Avenue (a right-hand turn if driving north on Connecticut from DC and a left-hand turn if driving south from the Beltway). Take East-West Highway to Beach Drive and turn right (south) and drive to the locked National Park Service gate across Beach Drive at the District line (beyond the right-hand intersection of Wyndale Road). Park in the parking lot just before the NPS gate or along the road if the parking lot is full. Please note that Beach Drive is closed south of the NPS gate so you will have to approach the meeting place from the north.
What to Wear: Please dress appropriately for the weather. Wear sturdy boots or sneakers. 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 and snacks if you have them. Tools and gloves will be provided. If you have trash grabbers or nets, please bring them. Students can earn SSL hours, but please bring needed forms.
