WHY: As part of the MLK Weekend of Service, Rock Creek Conservancy is celebrating with an entire weekend of volunteer service opportunities.  Combating English ivy, an aggressive invasive vine that weakens and kills trees, helps protect Rock Creek’s tree canopy.  Removing other invasive vines such as berry and Oriental bittersweet also helps to protect our native trees.  Picking up trash makes our parks more healthy and beautiful.

WHO:  Rock Creek Conservancy is a local nonprofit organization working to protect the lands and waters of Rock Creek and revitalize Rock Creek Park for people to treasure and enjoy.  The Conservancy's partners for these events are the National Park ServiceMontgomery Parks, and Blue Planet Scuba, and Chevy Chase Church.
