Stream Clean-Up Planned for MLK Jr. Day
Volunteers will clean up trash from the stream and woods surrounding the Matthew Henson Trail on Monday.
Martin Luther King, Jr.’s birthday is not just a day to celebrate his civil rights legacy. It’s also a recognized day of service, and various groups have organized volunteer activities around Montgomery County.
In nearby Aspen Hill, the Rock Creek Conservancy has organized a trash clean-up on Monday along the Matthew Henson Trail off Veirs Mill Road. Volunteers will meet at the intersection of Turkey Branch Parkway and Adrian Street at 10 a.m. and will work until 1 p.m. Gloves and bags will be provided, and hot chocolate will be served. Register for the event on the Rock Creek Conservancy’s website.
Governor Martin O’Malley briefly stopped by Turkey Branch in Aspen Hill last year for the MLK Day of Service. Turkey Branch is part of the Rock Creek watershed.
