Join Rock Creek Conservancy as we train Stream Team Leaders, both novices and seasoned pros, in anticipation of our annual Extreme Cleanup with the Alice Ferguson Foundation on April 13, 2019. This will be a great way for Stream Team Leaders, new and old, to refresh their event leading skills, learn a few things about invasive plant management, and a chance to share tips and experiences with fellow leaders.

Interested leaders must sign up for the Stream Team Leader Training on Saturday, February 23 from 10:00 am – 1:00 pm at the Cleveland Park Neighborhood Library located in Washington, DC. Transit details are included below. At the training leaders will learn about trash issues in DC Waterways and how to effectively track and document trash levels.

You MUST register for this event: SIGN UP HERE 

What: The training will equip Stream Team Leaders with the necessary tools to organize and host trash cleanup efforts throughout the year, including during Extreme Cleanup on April 13, 2019. Trainees will also gain valuable information about Rock Creek Conservancy and our “mini-oases” restoration sites for the upcoming year.

As part of the training, volunteers will be taking a quick walk to a local waterway to conduct a clean-up and get a better sense of how Rock Creek Conservancy hosts volunteer events. Please be sure to wear comfortable shoes that may be a little dirty walking in the Park.

When: Saturday, February 23, 2019, from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm.

Where: Volunteers will meet at the Cleveland Park Neighborhood Library (3310 Connecticut Ave NW, Washington, DC 20008). The library is metro accessible via the Cleveland Park Metro station on the Red Line. Street Parking is also available.
