Litter Cleanup at Little Forest Park

Sunday, June 18, 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Join Rock Creek Conservancy, the National Park Service, and Stream Team Leaders Bethann Siegel and John Burwell for a litter and invasive removal restoration event in Rock Creek Park. Trash is the visible form of stormwater pollution, a major threat to water quality and park health and its removal makes the parklands cleaner, safer, and more beautiful for all. Invasive plants are a major threat to our fragile forests, and stopping their spread helps allow for a thriving native understory. Additional information will be sent from the event leader one business day before the event.


When:  Sunday, June 18, 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Where:  Little Forest Park

What to Wear:  Please dress appropriately for the work and weather. We recommend wearing sturdy boots or sneakers and long layers, including pants and long sleeves - this ensures safety and reduces likelihood of exposure to nuisances like poison ivy.
