Come out and enjoy the weather Friday or Saturday and celebrate Latino Conservation Week with Montgomery County Parks and Latino Outdoors. Today Montgomery County Parks and Latino Outdoors was at Lake Needwood for some kayaking today on the water. Having new experiences and getting to know different people in Montgomery County’s Latino Community is a benefit of this weeks activities. This week the Latino community gets to broaden their exposure to new parks and nature centers all throughout Montgomery County. I have truly enjoyed getting outdoors and having some amazing adventures in some of the remarkable parks in Montgomery County. Make sure you visit these fun, enjoyable for all, and sometimes educational, places too! You don’t know what you may see or learn outdoors in the stunning amazement or the calm awe of Nature!

Rock Creek Conservancy(opens in a new tab) and Montgomery Parks invite you to celebrate Latino Conservation Week with us! Join us for a socially-distant trash cleanup, where we will focus our efforts at the Matthew Henson Trail.
Trash, the visible form of pollution, is a threat to our precious parklands and waterways. By reducing pollution on land, we decrease the chance of it entering our creek, rivers, and larger bodies of water through storm water runoff. Thank you for helping to protect the Rock Creek watershed!
