Thank you so much for participating in our Fall Sweep the Creek coordinated by Friends of Sligo Creek with support from Montgomery Parks. We had nearly 400 volunteers take part in collecting about 250 bags of trash and recyclables. We are so grateful to you and your neighbors for joining us in working to keep our community trash free.
Friends of Sligo Creek is a nonprofit community organization dedicated to protecting, improving, and appreciating the ecological health of Sligo Creek Park and its surrounding watershed. We put on clean-up and clear-out events in the park, offer indoor programs for learning, and organize guided outdoor explorations. We monitor civic developments, monitor the creek's water quality, and advocate for policies and decisions that will support a healthier Sligo Creek.
