Located only a few miles from the Nation's Capital, Kenilworth Park & Aquatic Gardens is home to the only remaining tidal marsh in DC, and is famous for its breathtaking historic water lily and lotus ponds. The Friends of Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens will also be in attendance to assist with projects and share their in-depth knowledge of the park with volunteers. Join us as we unite in service in the same remarkable way that so many came together following the events of September 11th, 2001.

 

Free lunch and t-shirts will be provided for all volunteers!
