Rock Creek meanders 33 miles through the Washington metropolitan area — through forested parkland, along busy roads, and near hiking trails, businesses, and backyards. Rock Creek Conservancy is the only organization solely dedicated to the creek and its parks, an area visited annually by more than two million people. A philanthropic partner to Rock Creek Park, the Conservancy protects the park by protecting the watershed — leveraging the park’s popularity and empowering visitors and neighbors to explore, enjoy, and become stewards of this national treasure. Each year, more than 4,000 volunteers pick up trash, remove invasive species, and restore native habitat, while dozens of volunteer Stream Team leaders adopt sections of the creek for neighborhood-based stewardship and promote equity throughout the watershed. You too can be a Rock Creek steward — and ensure its health and beauty for this and future generations.
