Thank you for attending National Public Lands Day!

Saturday, September 28th was a huge success! With our partners, the Rock Creek Conservancy and the National Environmental Education Foundation over 250 volunteers came to support various projects throughout Rock Creek Park. It was an amazing day to celebrate and to connect people to public lands in their community, inspire environmental stewardship, and encourage the use of public lands for education, recreation, and general health.
A special thanks to
Potomac Appalachian Trail Club, Dumbarton Oaks Conservancy and our friends at Civil War Defenses of Washington for all of your help. We could not have done it without you!
