“Rock Creek Park Extreme Cleanup Call for Volunteers and Leaders

On April 5, Rock Creek Conservancy — with your help­ — will have cleanup events at 70+ sites all over the Rock Creek watershed. In the past five years, volunteers have collected a combined total of over 12,000 bags of litter, 60 tons of junk, 800 tires, and 35,000 plastic bags. As a result of these efforts, many locations are much cleaner than before. This will be the sixth annual cleanup, and we need your help to make it the best ever. We want you alongside us this April.

What: Our goal is a total stream cleanup of Rock Creek and its tributaries, the parks connected to Rock Creek, and the neighborhoods near Rock Creek where trash originates.
Where: Check out our Extreme Cleanup map to find a volunteer site near you. Most popular locations accessible by public transportation: Woodley Park Metro (Red Line); buses: Circulator, 96, L1, L2.
When: Saturday, April 5, 9:00am – 12:00pm
Why: Our goal is a total stream cleanup of Rock Creek and its tributaries, the parks connected to Rock Creek, and the neighborhoods near Rock Creek where trash originates.”
