Join Rock Creek Conservancy and the National Park Service for a special beautification planting of an area of Rock Creek Park off of Rock Creek Parkway! Our last scheduled planting was rained out, so we hope you can join us this time around!

Event Activity: Volunteers will help plant wildflowers in support of Rock Creek Park's ongoing beautification plan. The plan, which harks back to Lady Bird Johnson's original beautification campaign launched in the 1960s, will be completed throughout Rock Creek Park in the coming years.

Location: Rock Creek Parkway and Pennsylvania Ave NW - The plot of land is near the exit ramp off of Rock Creek Parkway to Pennsylvania Ave NW, directly adjacent to the Four Season's hotel. Final meeting details will be sent to all registered volunteers. Parking is unavailable directly near the site. Please consider public transportation (the Foggy Bottom station is close by), or park in the Georgetown neighborhoods or at Thompson's Boat Center.

What to Wear: Please dress appropriately for the weather. Wear sturdy boots or sneakers, no sandals. We recommend long pants and sleeves to prevent contact with poison ivy.
