Shutdown | Ways to Enjoy and Help the Parks

Rock Creek Conservancy has put together some volunteer and recreational opportunities for you over the next few days in the Montgomery Country section of Rock Creek. These county parks, north of the District line, are unaffected by the federal shutdown. Enjoy the out-of-doors and relieve some stress! All are welcome, furloughed or not, and the events will go forward if the federal government re-opens.
