Tenleytown Main Street will lead the effort to clean up Wisconsin Avenue and get the commercial district ready for spring. From Fessenden Street to Tenley Circle, volunteers will pick up trash, weed and mulch tree boxes along Wisconsin Avenue, and remove invasive species and prune overgrowth at Fessenden Park.

Where: Volunteers will meet at the small triangular park at Wisconsin Ave NW and Fessenden St NW.
Who: Volunteers of all ages welcome. Those under 16 must be accompanied by an adult. High school students can receive community service (SSL) hours for participation, but please bring needed forms.
What to Wear: Please dress appropriately for the weather. It may be chilly so dress warmly and in layers. Wear sturdy boots or sneakers, no sandals.
What to Bring: Tenleytown Main Street will provide trash bags, gardening gloves, mulch, and garden tools. Feel free to bring your own tools and gloves if you have them. If you have trash grabbers or nets, please bring them.
