Coffee & Cleanup @ Forest Hills Park
December 7 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am
Help beautify Forest Hills Park and protect Rock Creek by cleaning up trash and invasive plants around the park and on the playground at 32nd and Chesapeake Streets, NW. Plan to join your hosts – Friends of Forest Hills Playground, DC Department of Parks and Recreation, Rock Creek Conservancy and the Erich Cabe Team – for a morning of service with your neighbors!
The kid-friendly cleanup within the playground enclosure will focus on trash, leaves and sand. Adult and teen volunteers can tackle the trash in the wider park, and DPR will lead invasive species removal and rain garden maintenance. Some rakes and brooms will be provided. Bring gloves and gardening tools if you have them.
Adults who sign up here don’t have to fill out the volunteer waivers on site: https://rockcreekconservancy.org/what-we-do/upcoming-events#event=35422794. DPR will provide separate waivers for under-18 helpers.
SSL hours available for students (RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org). Coffee and treats for volunteers courtesy of the Erich Cabe Team.
