Rock Creek Conservancy has developed several volunteer and recreational opportunities in the Montgomery Country section of Rock Creek for early October. These county parks, north of the District line, are unaffected by the federal shutdown. Enjoy the outdoors and relieve some stress! All are welcome, furloughed or not, and the events will go forward if the federal government re-opens.
Friday, Oct. 4, 10:00 am to noon
Volunteers will haul out trash from the creek and woodlands along Josephs Branch, a tributary of Rock Creek.
Saturday, Oct. 5, 10:00 am to noon
Explore the headwaters of Rock Creek with a walk around the beautiful Lake Frank. This 3.5-mile loop offers a variety of sights and terrain.
Monday, Oct. 7, 10:00 am to noon
Help clean up Meadowbrook Park, from East-West Highway to the Rock Creek Park boundary at the Maryland/DC line.
