Location

The Friends of Mount Vernon Trail (FoMVT) will be improving the trail in Rosslyn. Volunteers will also remove invasive vegetation and pick up trash near the entrance to the trail. No special skills are needed; they'll teach you how to help in just a few minutes!

After volunteering, the group will gather at a restaurant in Rosslyn to eat food and socialize. Attendance at the social event is optional.

Pick your date(s) and reserve a spot!

Volunteers may perform some of the following work:

  • Using pruners and loppers to cut vegetation
  • Using hand saws to cut tree branches
  • Sweeping or using a leaf blower
  • Hauling away vegetation
  • Picking up trash

What to Bring:

  • Water
  • Gloves (They'll have some to borrow)
  • Long sleeves and long pants (They sometimes encounter poison ivy)

Where to Meet:

Meet at the entrance of the trail near the intersection of Langston Blvd and N Lynn Street. Look for the purple Friends of the Mount Vernon Trail sign and bikes with tools!

Here is the Google street view image of the location.

If coming by car, you can look for street or garage parking in Rosslyn or park at Theodore Roosevelt Island. If coming by metro, it is a short 6 minute walk.

Group Volunteering:

FoMVT welcomes groups to volunteer at their events. If you plan on having more than 20 people come to a particular event, just let them know via email (hello@mountvernontrail.org) no less than one week prior to the day of the event so they can better prepare supplies and promote your group’s attendance on social media. You can read more about group volunteering on their website here.
