Spend your Sunday morning making a difference with some of the best local and national partners around! Join Anacostia Riverkeeper, Potomac Conservancy, Corazon Latino, National Forest Service, Ocean Conservancy, National Park Service, National Environmental Education Foundation, Park Rx, and DC Chapter of the Surfrider Foundation! in celebrating National Public Lands Day, the single largest volunteer effort for public lands in the nation!
This community celebration will feature food, fun, and a trash cleanup at one of our favorite local spots, Anacostia Park! If this year is anything like the last, you will be joining over 75,000 volunteers at more than 2,100 public land sites in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico to do your part for these national treasures.
There’s more! We are also excited to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Wild & Scenic Rivers, a national system established to keep rivers healthy and free flowing, by helping clean and protect your local waterway.
All tools, drinking water, and supplies will be provided by your hosts. And as a thanks for all your hard work, light refreshments will be served before and after the event!
