2022 Individual Cleanups
By Rock Creek Conservancy

With the ongoing pandemic and safety considerations, Rock Creek Conservancy is excited to offer socially-distant service options - the work of stewarding Rock Creek continues! Individual cleanups are just what they sound like: you, your mask, a trash bag, and whatever part of the Rock Creek watershed that means the most to you.

You may choose any time and date that works for you to complete this activity.

For all individual cleanups:

  • BE SAFE: follow CDC guidelines for social distancing and other hygiene.
  • Use your judgment. Don't pick up anything that seems unsafe or unsanitary. 
  • Wear gloves.
  • Before heading out, register your cleanup so we can celebrate the Rock Creek community and our combined efforts.
  • After you clean up, let us know how you’ve helped Rock Creek by sending an email to, telling us how many bags of trash you picked up, how many people participated, and for how long.    
  • Then do it again!

The Rock Creek watershed is almost 80 square miles and has a lot of different land managers. Cleanups can happen anywhere you'd like and where you have permission.
