With national support from Exelon, we are aiming to connect our members, alumni, friends, and partners across the country to create a nationwide network of Earth Month celebrations.

Registration and kick-off will take place at the Sweetgum Parking Area. As you enter the park, the U.S. Park Police building will be on your immediate right.
