Volunteer in Rock Creek Park

You can make a difference by volunteering at Rock Creek Park!

Volunteers enhance Rock Creek Park by assisting in many areas of park operations. They help protect natural and cultural resources by removing trash from park lands and streams, by removing invasive, nonnative plant species, and by maintaining the park's 32-mile trail system. Volunteers enrich the experience of park visitors by providing information and interpretation at locations throughout Rock Creek Park, including Peirce Mill, the Nature Center, and the Old Stone House.
