The 5pm Post – Met Branch Trail – Day of Service, Sept. 11

If you use the Met Branch Trail (MBT), here’s your chance to get involved in improvements to the trail and surrounding corridor.

Over the past year, a number of local nonprofit groups, including the Rails-to-Trails Conservancy and Casey Trees, have done some great things to the MBT, like planting shade and fruit trees, and helping DC Prep paint a colorful mural beside the pathway.

And an active community has grown around the MBT, responding to recent incidents of crime by organizing regular volunteer patrols.

Friends of the Met Branch Trail is organizing a Day of Service on the trail – Saturday, September 10, 9 a.m. to noon – and you can get involved!

Volunteers are needed to pick up trash and weed sections of the trail. Equipment like rakes, utility brooms, yard and garden shears are needed as well. Refreshments will be provided.
