Shepherd Parkway needs your help this Spring

Here are three things you can do:
1Sign the Shepherd Parkway Call to Action

We've accomplished a great deal through the labors of our incredible volunteers, but Shepherd Parkway cannot realize its potential as a community asset without major investments by National Capital Parks-East (NACE), and it's up to us to create the political will.

The Call to Action, started in July 2014, lays out our vision for the park and calls on NACE and other decision makers to do their part. Please sign if you have not already. 

2. Donate to our Go Fund Me Campaign

This is a labor of love for a us, but we also need money to sustain and build on our efforts.

Your gift will help us provide small perks like coffee and donuts to our volunteers, tools and equipment to keep them working, and handbills and lawn signs to spread the word.

We are a grassroots, shoestring operation. Making a little bit go a long way is what we do.

Give $5, $10, or whatever you can afford.

The residents, volunteers, plants, animals, and river will thank you. 

3. Attend a Community Clean-Up

There is still far too much trash and invasive species in the park.

Join us from 11 am to 1 pm on 

          Saturday, March 12
          Saturday, April 9
          Saturday, May 14
We meet in the picnic area near the corner of Martin Luther King and Malcolm X Avenues SE.

Wear boots, long sleeves, and clothes you don't mind getting dirty.

Gloves, bags, and refreshments will be provided.

Questions? Contact Nathan Harrington
