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.
