Oxon Cove Park and Oxon Hill Farm are a national park site along the Potomac River. Rich in history and culture, this national park is a green haven amidst an otherwise heavily urbanized region of Prince Georges County and Washington, D.C. This park provides important educational and recreational opportunities for visitors, including thousands of school children annually. Unfortunately, the park is currently under threat from potential development.

Join us for the shoreline sweep-up on May 5th to show your support for this important place and help spruce the park up for spring!
