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.
