Kojo Nnamdi Show Features Rock Creek Park Today!

Today on The Kojo Nnamdi Show, Rock Creek Park was featured in a piece titled, Rock Creek Park: Past, Present, and Future.  Rock Creek Conservancy's friends Melanie Choukas-Bradley and Scott Einberger were guests and had much to say about our wonderful backyard treasure.
Melanie is the author of "A Year in Rock Creek Park: The Wild, Wooded Heart of Washington, DC," and the third edition of "City of Trees: The Complete Field Guide to the Trees of Washington, DC."  A naturalist and tour leader of the Audubon Naturalist Society, Melanie displayed her expertise on all things Rock Creek Park, specifically her wealth of knowledge regarding the Park's native plants.  Scott Einberger, an NPS ranger and author of "A History of Rock Creek Park: Wilderness and Washington, DC,"gave the historic context of the Park to tie the story together.

Finding Common Ground in Rock Creek Park

Rock Creek Park stretches from Fort Bayard Park in Northwest to Barnard Hill in Northeast, with many other sites situated between them. Yet these official, administrative boundaries of the Park don’t reveal how extensive Rock Creek Park really is.

It extends and crisscrosses all boundaries – physical and imagined. Last Saturday, I was looking through knick-knacks at Eastern Market in Southeast, a place that I consider to be geographically removed from Rock Creek Park. Despite this, I discovered a postcard from 1921 with a picture of Rock Creek Park’s Peirce Mill on its front. I held onto it because I thought it was worth keeping, and it gradually dawned on me how incredible it is that almost 100 years later, the structure on the postcard - Peirce Mill - still stands.

Finding Peace in Rock Creek Park

Since moving to a house next to Rock Creek Park three decades ago, the Park has been my source of peace--the place I go to clear my mind and subdue the stresses of life.

Although circumstances in those 30 years have forced me to make dramatic changes in the ways I enjoy the Park, it remains a source of comfort and wonder.

Initially I lost myself in long solo runs on trails or on Beach Drive (thank you, National Park Service, for closing it to traffic on weekends and holidays). I loved the crunch of dirt and stones underfoot and the cacophony of cicadas and birds hidden in the branches.

The Cycle of Life

His visit became a tribute to his mother.

After Doug Barker’s mother was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease, he decided to play hooky and take a walk through Rock Creek Park.

Victory for Montgomery County Trees

Thank you to the Montgomery County Council, the County Executive, and all of you who stood up for trees! On July 23, the Council passed two bills that are good for Rock Creek. One will help preserve the county's tree canopy as whole. The other will promote and protect roadside trees in the County right of way. Nearly 80% of Rock Creek is located in Montgomery County, and trees in the surrounding urban areas and neighborhoods soak up runoff that damages and pollutes the creek. Rock Creek Conservancy and its supporters helped push for this important legislation. We encourage you to thank the entire Council for their action.
