How We Work

Despite the small size of the creek and park, FOSC has an outsized reputation in Montgomery County and in Maryland because of the activism and remarkable commitment of our members. We take seriously our role as stewards of Sligo Creek and park. FOSC is part of the growing network of activists and naturalists who understand and are committed to improving our parks and watersheds as a legacy for all.

Guided by six FOSC Committees, and by Section Stewards who know the opportunities and challenges in their Creek sections, FOSC volunteers plan hands-on events in the Creek and Park, arrange virtual events and evening programs, produce the newsletter, monitor and test, maintain, and advocate for the creek.
