  • Get Involved with Rock Creek Conservancy

Volunteer and Make a Difference!

KidsRollingTireRock Creek Conservancy invites you to participate in one or more volunteer projects.  We offer a variety of fun, educational, and rewarding volunteer experiences.  Try an outdoor activity, such as trash cleanup or invasive plant removal.  If you prefer to work inside, we have education, outreach, and advocacy opportunities, as well as office work.

Volunteering is a wonderful way to meet people who love Rock Creek and want to do their part to protect it.  There are activities for kids to get outside and families to experience nature and how good it feels to work together on something that matters.

Calendar of Events and Monthly Newsletter

Check out our Calendar and sign up for our monthly email newsletter (in the top right corner of this page) to learn about volunteer events.

Stream Teams

Stream Teams adopt a section of Rock Creek or one of its 30 tributaries.  In this neighborhood-based program, volunteer team members help keep an eye on the creek and carry out projects near where they live or work.  Click here for more information.

Cleanup Projects

We are an active participant in the Alice Ferguson Annual Potomac River Watershed Cleanup.  The 2014 cleanup was on April 5.  A number of smaller, more localized cleanups occur throughout the year.  Please check our calendar or contact Karen Zeiter at This email address is being protected from spambots.

Public Outreach

Do you enjoy meeting new people?  Are you outgoing and interested in teaching others about the Rock Creek watershed and Rock Creek Conservancy.  If so, we need your help with our public outreach efforts.

The Conservancy is frequently invited to host a booth at local fairs, park festivals, and greening events.  We are looking for volunteers to spread the word at these valuable public outreach opportunities.

Please let us know if you would like to be the voice of Rock Creek Conservancy at a local event.  Outreach volunteers receive a training packet with information about our efforts to improve our parks and waterways.  We will provide you with all necessary visual displays and brochures, and you will be teamed with an experienced volunteer.

Help spread the word!  Please contact us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. if you'd like to volunteer or learn more.
