Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service

  • Fletcher's Cove, Washington, DC 4940 Canal Rd NW Washington, DC, 20007 United States (map)

In honor of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service, join Potomac Conservancy and help clean up the Potomac River at Fletcher’s Cove! Volunteers will meet at 10am at the bottom parking lot area to start the morning’s work.

This event is open to all ages. We will provide all the necessary supplies - just bring yourself and a few friends to help out!

This event is part of the National Park Service’s Canal Stewards program, engaging volunteers to become long-term caretakers of a site within the C&O Canal National Historical Park. Typical activities include picking up trash, pruning vegetation, removing invasive plants or repairing the towpath and trails.
