Join SCA for Earth Day to give back to DC’s public lands and help preserve Greenbelt National Park. With the support of American Express and in support of the Find Your Park campaign, SCA is mobilizing volunteers coast to coast in celebration of the National Park Service Centennial. Join us as we serve DC’s National Parks!
Situated just outside the National Capital beltway, Greenbelt Park is known for its accessibility and peaceful surroundings. The park features a 174-site campground, nine miles of trails, and three picnic areas. It provides a great way for local residents to get out and explore our shared public lands.
Free lunch and t-shirts will be provided for all volunteers!
