Rebuilding Place in the Urban Space

"A community’s physical form, rather than its land uses, is its most intrinsic and enduring characteristic." [Katz, EPA] This blog focuses on place and placemaking and all that makes it work--historic preservation, urban design, transportation, asset-based community development, arts & cultural development, commercial district revitalization, tourism & destination development, and quality of life advocacy--along with doses of civic engagement and good governance watchdogging.

Rock Creek Park cleanup this Saturday

Postcard: Boulder Bridge, Rock Creek Park, Washington, DC

From the Rock Creek Conservancy:

Help clean up Rock Creek – volunteer on April 6!

It’s time to give Rock Creek and its beautiful parks a spring cleaning. Sign up for the Rock Creek Extreme Cleanup this Saturday!

Rock Creek Conservancy is mobilizing volunteers at over 60 Rock Creek locations. Visit the volunteer website to find a spot (map of locations) near you. Most of the cleanups will take place on Saturday, April 6, from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon. Check the site you are interested in for details.

Register today! Some of the sites are highly popular and filling up quickly with volunteers.

This is a fun, worthwhile opportunity for people of all ages to work together to make a real difference for our parks. Student Service Learning credit is available.

The fifth annual Rock Creek Extreme Cleanup is part of the larger Potomac River Watershed Cleanup. Rock Creek Conservancy works in partnership with Montgomery County Parks, the National Park Service, and the Alice Ferguson Foundation to field volunteers for the event.

Bring your friends and families and join your neighbors in working for a clean Rock Creek! And please help spread the word to others who might be interested.
