On Saturday, June 22, 9 a.m. to noon, volunteer at Kenilworth Park for a morning of park stewardship.

You can participate in a variety of activities including invasive plant removal, litter collection, flower bed weeding and trail maintenance. Some activities involve working in shallow ponds. Registration is open to groups and individuals.

Space is limited for this event due to COVID. For this reason, there will be no walk-up registration. Organizers the Friends of Kenilworth Gardens ask that you only register if you are 100 percent certain you will be in attendance.

They will provide all necessary tools and supplies including gloves, boots, waders, shovels, rakes, wheelbarrows, trash bags, trash pickers and more. They recommend you bring a water bottle, snack, hat, string bag, a change of clothes, and sunscreen. Wear clothes and shoes you aren’t afraid of getting dirty and dress according to the weather.

Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens is at 1550 Anacostia Ave. NE. Register at kenaqgardens.org/calendar
