More than 60 volunteers spent four hours Saturday cleaning up Rock Creek in Twinbrook as part of the Rock Creek Conservancy's fourth annual Extreme Cleanup.
The Twinbrook site was one of 65 throughout the Rock Creek watershed.
Another cleanup is planned for April 28 in Kensington.
About 2,000 volunteers participated in Saturday's cleanup region-wide, Braeden Bumpers, a Chesapeake Conservation Corps volunteer with the Rock Creek Conservancy, said in a news release from JBG.
“This could be our most successful yet,” Bumpers said of the cleanup. The Twinbrook totals for trash and junk removed from the park could lead the day’s efforts, he said.
“It really was a great event, and I feel good, too, because I did something for the environment,” Gail Becker, who works at the Food and Drug Administration near the Twinbrook cleanup site, said in the release.
