“Come Volunteer in Rock Creek Park for #MLKDay

Join Rock Creek Conservancy on Saturday, January 16th and Monday, January 18th in honor of the 2016 MLK Day of Service. Over 15 volunteer activities are happening throughout Washington, DC, and Montgomery County, MD. Volunteer activities include (1) cutting invasive English ivy from trees as part of the Conservancy’s effort to protect the Rock Creek tree canopy; (2) cutting invasive vines such as berry and Oriental bittersweet so natives can grow in the park; (3) cleaning up trash that has accumulated along streams; and (4) laying mulch to improve trail access.
