Events DC in partnership with the Anacostia Watershed Society are co-hosting monthly Anacostia Riverwalk Cleanups and we would like for you to join in helping to beautify and restore your Anacostia River!

The area surrounding RFK stadium sees a lot of use by members of our community. By volunteering with us you'll be a vital part of restoring, maintaining, and cleaning up the beautiful Anacostia Riverwalk Trail.

As a special thank you from Events DC previously volunteers have been provided with D.C. United tickets, a special barbecue, and other means of shoring our gratitude for helping maintain a clean riverwalk trail.

Upcoming Events: The next Events DC Riverwalk clean-up will be on the evening of Monday June 6th. More information and registration available here
