+MPU D.C. Brickyard Service Project With Rock Creek Park

Rock Creek Park - Reservation 630

+More Perfect Union is a nationwide movement to strengthen our communities and heal our country by creating meaningful connections through service and leadership.

Do you look around at what’s happening in the country and wish things were better? Well, you can do something about it: Show up. Bring a friend. Join the movement.

Join us for a park cleanup service project with Washington D.C.’s Rock Creek Conservancy at Reservation 630 West. We’ll join together to preserve the area from invasive plant species. Afterwards, over some light drinks and food, we’ll share a short conversation on the meaning of service.

You’ll also need to register with the Conservancy¬†here¬†– don’t forget!

About the DMV, Washington Chapter

Washington, D.C. has always been a place of compromise. Born as the beating heart of American democracy, D.C. has long been a symbol of what we can achieve when we come together, and what can go wrong when division takes the place of connectedness in our communities.

The D.C. Brickyard is led by Ben Bain, Jaelin Lespier, and Ryan Smither.
