Discover your Impact Day

The employees of the Discovery Channel of Silver Spring, Md decided to discover their impact of volunteerism on the Washington, D.C. area. One of their projects included Greenbelt Park.

Their project was to help clean Still Creek. Still Creek is a watershed for the Anacostia River, Potomac River and the Chesapeake Bay.
Thus any trash picked up headed to Still Creek would affect the Anacostia River, Potomac River and the Chesapeake Bay.

Thanks to the Discovery Channel for making their impact on Still Creek and Greenbelt Park!
