Rock Creek Conservancy could have been a great non-profit. It had an engaged board, a small but growing base of volunteers, and excellent staff and leadership. But like many small organizations that are trying to grow, it has lost its way. The best of board is moving on, its longtime Executive Director left in autumn 2013, and now the organization is focusing most of its efforts on public relations and fundraising in an effort to get big as fast as possible. Bigger can be better, but not when it comes at the cost of effectiveness. Rock Creek's ecological health is declining but this non-profit has few answers. If you live in DC or Montgomery County and are concerned about the health of Rock Creek, your generosity is best directed elsewhere.

The Rock Creek Extreme Cleanup is fabulous! Hundreds of people come out, and I love being part of an effort that makes a difference right here in the Washington area. It's easy to get discouraged, but Rock Creek Conservancy makes me feel part of a wonderful community of people who care.
