Join Rock Creek Conservancy and the National Park Service to celebrate National Public Lands Day, a day to connect people to public lands in their community, inspire environmental stewardship, and encourage the use of public lands for education, recreation, and general health. Volunteers will help support Washington DC's National Park for everyone to enjoy.

Event Activity: Volunteers will restore an area of Piney Branch near Ingleside Terrace NW. Details on the final activity will be coming soon, but we want to give you plenty of time to sign up and get registered. Spots will be limited!

Location: Volunteers will meet at the Ingleside Terrace alley directly adjacent to Rock Creek Park. The alley is located next to 1841 Ingleside Terrace NW. Street parking is available and the site is about a 20-minute walk from the Columbia Heights Metro station.
