Rock Creek Conservancy

About the Conservancy

Rock Creek Conservancy is a nonprofit organization working in Washington, DC, and Montgomery County, Maryland, to protect and restore Rock Creek and its waters, parks, and lands.  The Conservancy raises public awareness about environmental threats, implements solutions, advocates for funding and resource protection, and encourages enjoyment of the beautiful parks that border the creek.  Each year, we help mobilize thousands of volunteers for projects, such as trash cleanups, tree planting, and invasive plant removal.  In 2011, we expanded our mission and are now conducting a planning process to guide our work for the next three to five years.

Project Description

The Research Intern will conduct research and prepare materials to document (1) threats to Rock Creek’s environmental, recreational, and cultural resources, and (2) what various agencies and organizations are doing to address those threats and increase use, enjoyment, and stewardship of the parks.

--Conduct online research on (1) environmental threats to Rock Creek (e.g., storm water, sewage leaks and overflows, invasive plants, land use issues), (2) recreational opportunities and issues, (3) cultural and historical resources, (4) park resources and management, and (5) educational resources.  This research will cover both the issue and how various agencies or organizations are addressing the issue.
