MLK and Tu B’Shvat Nature Clean-Up

Thank you for joining us for a volunteer day in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. We cleaned trash from the woods of Suitland Pkwy in Southeast DC in collaboration with Ward 8 Woods Conservancy, a grassroots non-profit with the mission of restoring more than 500 acres of forest in Ward 8 of Washington DC. Ward 8 Woods is the only environmental organization dedicated solely to Ward 8, a historically Black community, and the only green jobs program specifically for Ward 8 residents. This day coincides with the Jewish holiday of Tu B’Shvat. Tu B’Svhat, or “New Year for Trees,” is celebrated by Jews around the world as an ecological justice day.
