Join us for Rock Creek Park On the Move! PDF Print E-mail

Rock Creek Conservancy invites you to be active in Rock Creek Park with our new community program, Rock Creek Park On the Move! Nestled in the heart of Washington, DC, Rock Creek Park is a gateway to the National Park Service system and a backyard park for residents of the city.

About the Program: Rock Creek Park On the Move is a community program that combines stewardship events, healthy living programs, and active recreation opportunities with an interactive scorecard designed to track participants' progress and activity. Coordinated by The National Park Foundation, Rock Creek Park, and Rock Creek Conservancy, Rock Creek Park On the Move aims to get more people out on Rock Creek trails and in the Park.

About the Scorecard: Rock Creek Conservancy has created the Rock Creek Park On the Move scorecard to help people track their progress. The scorecard is free and available to all participants in print at the Nature Center and On the Move events, or online as a download. Once you complete the entire scorecard, turn it in and you will be entered into the prize raffle.

About the Activities: Rock Creek Park On the Move activities will include stewardship events, healthy living programs, and active recreation opportunities. On the Move programs will run from June 7th through December 6th with activities planned for each month. All of the On the Move activities will be on Rock Creek Conservancy's and Rock Creek Park's website.

Take Our Pledge to Remove English Ivy From Your Property

English ivy is an invasive plant that is commonly used as a ground cover. It spreads rapidly, kills trees, and damages property.

Please take our pledge to remove English ivy from your property and prevent its spread.

English ivy is a major threat to the health of the trees around Rock Creek in Montgomery County and the District.  I pledge to remove English ivy from my property and to protect my trees from its spread.

Advocate for Cleanup of Toxins in the Anacostia River PDF Print E-mail

Imagine not being able to play in Rock Creek or in your neighborhood stream.  After decades of pollution from toxic sites along the Anacostia River, that's the scenario for citizens who wish to use the Anacostia.  In February, a coalition of groups came together to form United for a Healthy Anacostia River.  This coalition intends to raise public awareness of the Anacostia's toxics problem and keep pressure on our local government officials not to let the cleanup fall behind.

To learn more about the problem and how you can help, go here and visit the website of United for a Healthy Anacostia River.  And sign the petition urging the District to make cleaning up the toxins in the river a top priority.
