Volunteer and Make a Difference!

Rock 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.

Volunteers did some amazing work in 2017!

Public Outreach

Public Outreach

From galas to greenings, the Conservancy is often asked to table at events. We are always looking for volunteers to spread the word at these valuable public outreach opportunities.

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.

Contact for more details.
