It takes a village to keep natural communities healthy. Alert Rock Creek Park staff if you see any of the following along the trail:
- diseased vegetation
- infestations by non-native insect pests
- infestations by non-native plants, especially Early Detection Rapid Response species
- dumped mattresses, tires, appliances and other environmentally damaging trash
- unauthorized trails
- homeless camps
- issues with stormwater runoff
- anything that looks amiss.
If you do see something you’d like to share, make a note of your location and jot down a description of what you see. If possible, take a picture. Contact Rock Creek Park's Chief of Resources Management at 202-895-6010.
If you happen across a display of wildflowers or other beautiful scene, Park staff would probably enjoy hearing about that too!
