Latino Conservation Week Park Cleanup

Event Description:

Rock Creek Conservancy and Montgomery Parks invite you to celebrate Latino Conservation Week with us! Join us for a socially-distant trash cleanup, where we will focus our efforts at the Matthew Henson Trail, a Montgomery Parks site. Trash, the visible form of pollution, is a threat to our precious parklands and waterways. By reducing pollution on land, we decrease the chance of it entering our creek, rivers, and larger bodies of water through stormwater runoff.

Thank you for helping to protect the Rock Creek watershed!
