Words of the Week 

Owning up to being animal,
a creature of the earth.
Tuning our animal senses
to the sensible terrain:
blending our skin with the rain-rippled surface of rivers,
mingling our ears with the thunder
and the thrumming of frogs,
and our eyes with the molten gray sky.
Feeling the polyrhythmic pulse of this place – this huge windswept body
of water and stone.
This vexed being in whose
flesh we’re entangled.
Becoming Earth. Becoming Animal.
Becoming, in this manner, full human.

David Abram

Save Rock Creek Park Trees!



Join Rock Creek Conservancy volunteers and the National Park Service to save park trees from the chokehold of English ivy, an invasive vine that grows up tree trunks and will eventually weaken and kill the tree.


Volunteers will cut ivy from tree trunks using hand tools. Tools, gloves, and training on how to identify and cut English ivy will be provided.  Ages 16 and up to use tools.
