Partner Event: Meridian Hill Tree Planting
- Meridian Hill 16th St NW & W Street NW Washington, DC 20009 United States (map)
We've all heard about the importance of trees for clean air, but did you know we also need trees for clean water? Polluted runoff is the fastest growing source of pollution to the Potomac River, and trees are one of the best tools to combat it. Trees act as "nature's Brita filters" and help to remove pollutants from runoff before it reaches the Potomac, which is the source of drinking water for millions in our region.
