Tu B’Shvat Family Park Cleanup

February 5, 2023 @ 10:30 am – 12:00 pm
Kingman and Heritage Islands
Mira Smith

Celebrate Tu B’Shvat by cleaning up a green space in DC!

What: Meet on the banks of the Anacostia River to learn about Tu B’Shvat – often referred to as Jewish Arbor Day – and participate in a clean up of Kingman and Heritage Island! We will be joined by educators from Living Classrooms, the organization working to manage and conserve the Island.

We’ll gather together at the beginning for an interactive learning and intention setting and divide into work groups. At the end, we’ll gather again for a group photo and to share some Tu B’Shvat themed snacks. Bring your kids to learn to appreciate all that trees do for us, and give back to the trees by making the park they live in clean and beautiful.

All clean-up supplies and snacks will be provided. In case of heavy rain or snow this program will be canceled.

Who: This event is geared towards families with children, but everyone is welcome.

When: 10:30 AM – 12:00 PM

Where: Kingman and Heritage Islands. Exact location with map will be shared via email.

Registration: Registration for this project is free but required. Please register for each individual member of your family so we have an accurate head count by clicking on the red “register” button.

This program is brought to you in partnership with the Pozez JCC.
