On January 10, Litigation Support Manager Jordan Egert led Councilor, Buchanan & Mitchell (CBM) staff members Tana Papinova, Pat Drolet, Reema Patel and Kathleen Booker in volunteering at Rock Creek Conservancy’s Rock Creek Park clean-up event. The Conservancy aids in education, restoration, and preservation of Rock Creek’s history and beauty, including 33 miles of creeks.
The CBM team combined forces, spending several hours together cleaning up the river banks and wooded areas near Broad Branch Road. Their efforts, combined with those of other volunteers, helped clean up roughly a half mile of forested area and resulted in a collection of more than 30 bags of trash.
In performing the cleanup, Jordan noted some interesting items they found throughout the day:
- A US-AID iPhone
- Lots of sports jerseys
- A basketball hoop
He later reflected on the service opportunity saying “At the end of the event, we learned just how large an impact plastics and other non-native items have on the areas around us. We’ve all become more inspired to be less wasteful and more cognizant of our impact on the environment.”
If individuals would like to volunteer or learn more about the organization, they can visit Rock Creek Conservancy’s website.
