"To do something, however small, to make others happier and better, is the highest ambition, the most elevating hope, which can inspire a human being."


Hundreds of thousands of visitors come to the National Mall Memorial Parks every year to enjoy the beautiful cherry trees. Lots of visitors equal lots of waste, much of which can be recycled. So What Else will be helping National Park Service remove trash and recyclable material from the festival's grounds. As a volunteer you will be given trash grabbers to collect recyclables. Volunteers will also help remove full bags from recycling containers and replace them with empty bags. Gloves, trash grabbers and cool shirts will be provided.

Sign up for this awesome opportunity before all the slots are filled, they are filling fast !
