Here's what we found:

Saturday, the Anacostia Watershed Society is hosting a restoration workday at Kingman Island in Northeast D.C. Their goal is to remove invasive honey suckle plants to make room for a picnic area overlooking the Anacostia River.  

On Sunday, The Earth Ethics Action Team is partnering with Sunday Ethical Education for Kids (SEEK) to host a stream cleanup. They'll be hauling trash out of the lower part of Portal Branch of Rock Creek Park. 

Next weekend, on October 18th, the Rock Creek Conservancy is hosting a trash clean-up in Meadowbrook Park in Chevy Chase.
