Above: Suited and booted! These Rock Creek Conservation Corps crew members are getting ready to go canoeing.
They will learn to work as a team while exploring the watershed that they will spend the summer protecting.
Hands will be dirtied! Knowledge will be gained! Relationships will be forged! Doors will be opened! Blogs will be written?
Rock Creek Conservation Corps (RC3) started this week, and it's bigger than ever. For the third summer in a row, students from D.C. highschools are stepping outside the concrete jungle and are being plunged into the world of watershed conservation. The goal is simple: to empower non-traditional leaders from diverse backgrounds to become stewards of the environment. The program is designed to do this through a variety of conservation projects throughout the Rock Creek watershed. Want to know more about those projects? Tune in next week!
