Join SCA as we gather to ConSERVE DC this MLK Day by mobilizing the next generation of community stewards to help restore our public lands. 

With the support of American Express, we will be bringing together hundreds of volunteers for a massive cleanup of the Anacostia River. Join us to honor the legacy of Dr. King and connect the issues of social and environmental justice as we help to improve the health of DC’s urban waterfront.

WHEN: Monday, January 16th, 9:30 am to 02:30 pm.

WHERE: Anacostia Park, 1500 Anacostia Drive, Washington, DC 20020. (Registration and kick-off will take place in front of the Skating Pavilion.) 

A free shuttle will be provided for volunteers from Anacostia Metro Station; look for an SCA representative at the Kiss and Ride metro exit. Please plan to be at the metro meet-up spot by 9:00 am if you plan to take the shuttle.

WHAT: Volunteers will conduct a massive cleanup of the Anacostia River, removing trash and debris from the shoreline to improve the health of DC’s urban waterfront.

BRING WITH YOU: Wear long pants and sturdy shoes that you don’t mind getting dirty. Bring extra layers as the event will take place in any weather! Please also bring your own water bottle for staying hydrated.

PROVIDED: SCA will supply breakfast and lunch for volunteers as well as work gloves and SCA winter hats.

REGISTRATION: Please register at to complete the online waiver.
