What is RC3?

Rock Creek Conservation Corps, or "RC3," is a summer youth conservation program that helps protect and revitalize Rock Creek and its parklands while providing transformative experiences to youth and empowering non-traditional leaders in conservation to develop and sustain a culture of environmental stewardship for future generations. RC3's goal is to accomplish critical conservation work while learning about the Rock Creek watershed: the extensive physical environment as it extends from its source to the Chesapeake Bay, the effects of modern life on water quality, the relationship of the park to the community, and the importance of maintaining a healthy watershed.
