“The earth is what we all have in common.”

-Wendell Berry

What is Piscataway Park to you?

Is it a trail to explore? A place to fish? A portal to the past? A refuge from the buzz and noise of the city? A classroom? A sacred place to connect with your ancestors?

What would you do to protect this land? What would happen if this place no longer existed?

Piscataway Park is what we all have in common, and as the park provides for us, we in turn must provide for it. If history has taught us anything, it’s that Piscataway Park is not guaranteed to us. We must work together as a community and remain vigilant in order to protect this place. The Accokeek Foundation, the community, YOU. We, all of us, are responsible for its care.

That is why your donation to the Accokeek Foundation this year is so important. 

You are a keystone species in the ecosystem of Piscataway Park, and this place depends on your support for its survival. 

Your donation this year will help:

  • Fund volunteer clean up efforts on the Potomac shoreline and throughout Piscataway Park.
  • Support maintenance of seven nature trails totaling almost five miles.
  • Fund field trips that connect lower income students to Piscataway Park, an opportunity they might otherwise miss.
  • Support a summer internship program that introduces high school students to sustainable careers in environmental science and agriculture.
  • Help us explore the community’s connections to this landscape through a “Land and River” workshop series.

Your support will make all of the difference in the impact on those who live, work, learn, and play in Piscataway Park.

Please help us ensure the future of Piscataway Park by making a tax-deductible gift today.
