Life Sciences Service Day
David C. Driskell Community Park
Meeting time and location: 9 a.m., LaPlata Beach
Located just south of College Park, Hyattsville is a city focused on community development and a vibrant arts scene. David C. Driskell Community Park, named after the late University of Maryland professor and successful artist, has been a central community space in the city for nearly 100 years. The park hosts local sports teams on many of its fields and has accessible pathways leading to the Anacostia River Northwest Branch Trail.
Our Life Sciences team will be busy helping with a variety of outdoor activities. The scope of our service will include but not be limited to invasive species removal and trash pick-up in the park. Our goal is to help protect the natural habitat in the park area while helping sustain a safe and clean environment for the many park visitors.
Additional items to bring:
- Face mask for the bus
- Reusable water bottles
- Hats, sunscreen and closed-toe shoes are encouraged
