7th Grader Organizes Creek Cleanup
Derick Walk, a seventh-grader at Thomas Johnson Middle School in Lanham, organized a community cleanup of Bald Hill creek in Lanham. Volunteers worked with him to clean up a much needed segment of the river. They pulled a wide variety of trash from the creek's bank.
Sen. David C. Harrington (D-Dist. 24) of Cheverly contributed gloves and bags for the cleanup and arranged for Prince Georgia's County to pick up the trash. Community First member, the Anacostia Watershed Society, provided all of the other needed supplies.
The mission of the Anacostia Watershed Society is to protect and restore the Anacostia River and its watershed communities by cleaning the water, recovering the shores, and honoring the heritage.
