Gearing up for summer...

Check back soon for more information on our upcoming service day - May 24th - at Marvin Gaye Park and the next Green Dinner - sometime in June. Email us - info@dcgreenmuslims.org - if you'd like to help out or participate!

Until then, here are two recent articles on religion and the environment that mention DC Green Muslims:

And when it stops raining, take a hike! Visit this site for a complete list of trails in the area (and here for a list of hiking clubs).

If you're in Virginia, Potomac Overlook Park (North Arlington) has guided walks, suitable for children 8 year and older, every Saturday and Sunday at 2pm (reservations needed). Visit their website for information.

For those of you in Maryland, the MD National Parks and Planning Commission has a lot of fun things to do. Check their website for activities, sorted by keyword.

Any suggestions on your favorite hike or nature walk? Share it with us in the comments.
