The scenic Cabin John Creek, which creates a natural neighborhood boundary to the northeast, is in need of some TLC and the Cabin John Citizen’s Association hopes you can help. Please join your neighbors for the 18th annual Cabin John Creek Cleanup on Saturday, April 26 from 9:30 a.m. to noon.
Volunteers should gather at the playground in Cabin John Local Park, by the one-lane bridge. Gloves and garbage bags are provided along with refreshments. Old clothes and sturdy shoes are recommended. The cleanup takes place rain or shine, unless there is severe weather. Children ages 12 and under must be accompanied by an adult.
The event is organized by the Friends of the Cabin John Creek Watershed, a volunteer environmental action group started in 1999 by members of Cabin John Citizens Association. Its membership now includes other citizens associations and interested citizens within and outside the watershed, including residents of Glen Echo, Bethesda, Potomac and Rockville. Groups who want to tackle a section of the river trail can contact Burr Gray at email@example.com or at 703-607-2740
(work), or 240-753-5918 (cell) to coordinate.
