Two local organizations are looking for help to spruce up the Anacostia Riverwalk Trail next week.

Events DC and the Anacostia Watershed Society are seeking helpers to remove litter along the path Monday evening. Volunteers should register online and meet at RFK Stadium’s Parking Lot 6 (575 Oklahoma Ave. NE) at 5:30 p.m. The cleanup ends at 7 p.m.

“The area surrounding RFK stadium sees a lot of use by members of our community,” a webpage on the cleanup says. “By volunteering with us you’ll be a vital part of restoring, maintaining, and cleaning up the beautiful Anacostia Riverwalk Trail.”

Organizers require volunteers to wear closed-toe shoes. They also recommend long pants to avoid poison ivy contact and insect bites. Water coolers will be available for helpers with reusable bottles.
