Gearing up for MLK Weekend of Service!


MLK Day Header


Make it a Day On, Not a Day Off!

We're gearing up for the 2018 MLK Weekend of Service, and we need you to help us save trees and clean streams in the Rock Creek watershed! Join us for events throughout Washington, DC and Montgomery County, MD on Monday, Jan. 15. 

See what we accomplished together in 2017! 

Volunteer activities include:

  • Cutting invasive English Ivy from trees to protect Rock Creek's tree canopy
  • Cutting invasive vines such as porcelain berry and Oriental bittersweet so natives can thrive
  • Cleaning up trash that has accumulated in and around Rock Creek and its tributaries.
