Join Tenleytown Main Street and local businesses on Earth Day as we get our business district ready for spring and celebrate the environment, health, and wellness in our community.
Each April, Tenleytown Main Street partners with the Rock Creek Conservancy to spruce up Wisconsin Avenue. Tenleytown is one of 70 sites that participates in the annual Extreme Clean Up to prevent litter and debris from making its way into the Rock Creek Watershed. Volunteers remove litter, weed and mulch street trees, trim plantings in the parks at Fessenden Street and Tenley Circle, and enjoy spring weather.
Tenleytown merchants offer special deals and promotions throughout the day, as well as fun events with an Earth conscious theme.
Support a clean and green Tenleytown, and promote your business by sponsoring TMS programs to maintain tree boxes and urban green spaces. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more about sponsorship opportunities.
Tenleytown Earth Day 2017
On Saturday, April 23, TMS held its first annual Earth Day celebration, which included a Wisconsin Avenue beautification event in the morning; special promotions at local businesses including Angelico’s La Pizzeria, Burger Tap & Shake, DC Soccer Supplies, Middle C Music, Pete’s New Haven Style Apizza, PetMAC, and Whole Foods; a recycling event at Best Buy; and an Earth Day themed craft and story time at the library. Despite a downpour, more than 60 community volunteers participated in the beautification event, including groups from Urban Investment Partners, American University, and Boy Scout Troop 100. Volunteers removed nearly 50 bags of litter and plant debris, weeded and mulched close to 50 tree boxes, and trimmed weeds and invasive species at Fessenden Park, improving sight lines and safety in the park.
