Volunteer Opportunities in Around DC

Wondering if anyone has any recommendations for organizations that lead trail clearing or cleaning in the area? Looking to volunteer but have struggled to find options that are more than one-off efforts.

Re: Volunteer Opportunities in Around DC

Hello, @Anson313 ! It's great that you're interested in volunteering in the DC area! There are some really incredible organizations around here, always looking for volunteers. @coolblades made a great recommendation with PATC.  You can also check out: WABA (Washington Area Bicyclist Association): https://waba.org/get-involved/volunteer/ 

Or Potomac Conservancy: https://potomac.org/act-local 

Or Kingman Island/Living Classrooms: http://www.kingmanisland.org/get-involved 

There are many more great organizations; if you prefer a more specific region. Thank you for your volunteer efforts!

Hey @Anson313!

If you're still looking, the Surfrider Foundation DC Chapter does tons of awesome work on a regular basis, as does Mid-Atlantic Climbers. Here's some more info/upcoming events:

Good luck (any maybe see you there).
