Rock Creek Park VOLUNTEERS.

Rock Creek Park VOLUNTEERS provided hundreds of hours of service despite really cold temperatures on Martin Luther King Jr. Day. On January 20, 2020 at 10 sites in the park, volunteers filled a 30 yard dumpster with bamboo and picked up and filled over 500 bags with trash and invasive plants. Thank you to park staff and our partners – Dumbarton Oaks Park Conservancy, Rock Creek Conservancy, Washington Parks and People - who organized and led these intrepid (it was really cold out there) volunteers.
