About

Hello Friends!It's that time of year again for the annual National Cherry Blossom Festival at National Mall and Memorial Parks -March 18th to April 2nd! We simply cannot pull off this gargantuan event without your help. Join us in the fun and excitement! We need your help with the recycling effort. Hundreds of thousands of visitors come to the park to enjoy these beautifulcherry trees, a gift from Japan in 1912. Lots of visitors = lots of waste, much of which can be recycled. We want to make sure that happens - and we cannot do it without your help!Volunteers will rove the busiest areas of the festival and collect recyclables using trash grabbers. Volunteers will also help remove full bags from recycling containers and replace them with empty bags. Gloves, trash grabbers, and a cool shirt will be provided. :)We have two time slots available:11am-3pm and 3:30 -7pm every day of the event with a big push for the weekends. We can certainly be flexible with times. We will have a cap of 50 people per time slot. We need all the help we can get! Groups and individuals of all ages are welcome! Please contact James_Pierce@NPS.GOV/ 202-744-1841 to sign up or if you have any questions or need more information. Come make a difference and keep the park clean while helping to ensure the preservation of these living legacies to international friendship. Thank you, friends, for all that you do. We look forward to seeing you!
