If you have participated in a Rock Creek Conservancy stream cleanup, you know the drill: Listen to a safety briefing, sign a waiver, grab gloves and a trash bag, and go! The leaders of these cleanups go through 90 minutes to two hours of training – that’s all. And the organization is hosting training sessions on March 14th and 18th for potential Rock Creek Extreme Cleanup volunteers. You can even attend the March 18th training from the comfort of your home.
