Friends of Cabin John Creek is a volunteer citizen group dedicated to the preservation, restoration, and stewardship of the Cabin John Creek watershed in Montgomery County, MD. Cabin John Creek flows through the communities of Rockville, Bethesda, Potomac, and Cabin John, drains into the Potomac River, and ultimately feeds the Chesapeake Bay.
We have developed new programs to inform and work with local communities and homeowners to identify stormwater issues and potential solutions. Find out more about what you can do at home and by the creek.
