Join in a Day of Service for Martin Luther King Jr Day on the Capital Trails Network. The Capital Trails Network is a regional network of world-class current and planned trails connecting the region. With 456 miles of trails currently in the Network, there is certain to be something! Our region is connected by its trails, rivers and roads. Your efforts at one trail spot will not only help that trail but the neighbors down the watershed by reducing trash flow or making the trails a more pleasant place to be. World-class means thoughtfully designed but also trash-free, well cared for, and free of invasive plants. Join a local organization (WABA is running one cleanup but there are lots more!) for MLK Day of Service to make our region’s trails and the landscapes they connect better. here Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens Hosted By: Friends of Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens Saturday, January 19th 1550 Anacostia Ave NE 9:00 am – 12:00 pm Status: Cancelled due to government shutdown Register here Anacostia Park Hosted By: Student Conservation Association Monday, January 21st 1900 Anacostia Ave SE 10:00 am – 12:30 pm Status: Cancelled due to government shutdown Register here Metropolitan Branch Trail Hosted By: WABA and Carlos Rosario School Monday, January 21st 514 V St NE 9:00 am – 12:00 pm Status: Postponed due to inclement weather Register here Marvin Gaye Trail Hosted By: Washington Parks & People Monday, January 21st 601 Division Ave NE 10:00 am – 2:00 pm Register by emailing: firstname.lastname@example.org Prince George’s County Bladensburg Waterfront Park Hosted By: Friends of Quincy Run, Washington Rowing School, Town of Bladensburg Monday, January 21st 4601 Annapolis Road, Bladensburg MD Status: Confirmed on as of Friday 1/18 9:30 am – 12:30 pm Register here City of Alexandria Belle Haven Park Hosted By: Friends of the Mt Vernon Trail Monday, January 21st 10:00 am – 12:00 pm Register here Arlington County Washington & Old Dominion Milepoint 0 in Shirlington Hosted By: Friends of the W&OD and Trail Patrol Monday, January 21st 10:00 am For more information and to register, please email email@example.com Montgomery County Sligo Creek Park Hosted By: Montgomery Parks and Friends of Sligo Creek Monday, January 21st 9:00 am – 11:00 am Register here Rock Creek Regional Park Hosted By: Montgomery Parks Monday, January 21st 9:00 am – 11:00 am Register here Know of a cleanup on a trail in the Capital Trails Network that we should add to this roundup?

Bothered by the trash on your ride home every day? See something that should not be there? Grabbing a few items on your way home doesn’t take too long, is easy to place in a nearby public trash can and does make an impact. We know there are folks throughout the region doing trash removal on trails already, it is not just you battling it all! The DC Trail Rangers will certainly be doing more group cleanups in the spring and they have their appeal – more social! free snacks! But you don’t have to wait for us to cleanup your trail.
