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 and Southwest Airlines, we will be bringing together hundreds of volunteers for a massive cleanup of the Anacostia River. This event will kick-off the Year of the Anacostia, celebrating Anacostia Park’s 100th anniversary on the waterfront. 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 15th, 9:00 am to 12:00pm. Registration & breakfast beginning at 9:00 am, kickoff at 9:30. Work will conclude at 12:00.

WHERE: Anacostia Park, 1500 Anacostia Drive, Washington, DC 20020. Registration and kick-off will take place at the Skating Pavilion at 9am. A free shuttle will be provided for volunteers at the Anacostia Metro Station and will depart at 8:45am sharp from the Kiss and Ride Exit. 

WHAT: Volunteers will conduct a massive cleanup of the Anacostia River, removing trash from the shoreline and invasive species from the Anacostia Riverwalk Trail to help 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 to prepare for the cold weather! Please also bring your own water bottle for staying hydrated.
