Event Details

Congressional Cemetery is a 35-acre historic burial ground located in the Capitol Hill neighborhood of Washington, D.C. Initially known as the Washington Parish Burial Ground, Congressional is considered the only cemetery of national memory founded prior to the American Civil War. Among the more than 55,000 burials at Congressional are some of the most important figures in our country’s history including one Vice-President, one Supreme Court Justice, six Cabinet Members, 19 Senators, 71 Representatives and the first Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, J. Edgar Hoover. As part of our Community Tree Planting program, we will be adding a total of 35 trees to Congressional on Saturday, April 6 – one of our largest and most ambition projects of the season. Getting There The Metrobus stop is Potomac Avenue SE & 17th SE (B2).The Stadium Armory Metro is a 0.2 mile walk to the site. Street parking may be limited. Requirements

Children under 18 years of age must have their parent or legal guardian sign their waiver and be supervised by an adult at all times. We will ask you for personal, emergency contact, and health information during the registration process.
  • No specific skills required. Each event starts with a tool safety and planting demonstration. Volunteers plant alongside experienced Citizen Foresters and staff.
  • Register in advance. Space is limited. If your plans change prior to the event, please update your registration status so we are sure to have the necessary number of volunteers.

  • Dress comfortably and appropriately for the weather. Closed toe shoes are required.
