5% Day for Little Falls Watershed Alliance
Tuesday, July 2nd
12:00 AM
WFM Friendship Heights, FREE

Today only, 5% of our net sales will go to the Little Falls Watershed Alliance (LFWA). LFWA was started in 2008 to protect the fragile natural environment of the Little Falls watershed. Located in densely populated area of NW DC and lower Montgomery County the 9 square mile Little Falls watershed is home to three creeks - the Little Falls Branch, the Willet Branch and the Minnehaha Branch. While most of the area is houses and business, the 160 acre Little Falls Stream Valley Park runs through the heart of the watershed as does the popular Capital Crescent bike trail.  Help us support this all-volunteer group by shopping with us on 7/2.
