The Rock Creek Filibusters

The Rock Creek Filibusters work on PATC trails in Rock Creek Park. The crew schedules monthly work trips during the year, usually from April to October. We assist Rock Creek overseers with projects too large or complex for an individual to conduct. These projects include tread repairs, erosion control, trail re-routes, step replacement and bridges.

The Filibusters welcome all on our trips. No previous experience is required. In the past, volunteers have included high school students seeking community service hours for graduation, Scouts, employees from local and national conservation organizations, and neighborhood groups. If your organization or group wishes to join us, please contact Alex Sanders at to coordinate. Information on upcoming trips is posted on the calendar.
