Come support the red, white and green?

This Friday, fans looking to do their part for Mother Earth can sign up as volunteers as part of the third annual Green-Up Day.

The event, hosted by the Washington Nationals Dream Foundation and the Earth Conservation Corps and Rebuilding Together DC, will ask volunteers to remove trash and debris from the wetland area along the Anacostia River at sites directly across the street from Nationals Park in Diamond Teague Park and Kenilworth Recreation Park in northeast D.C.

It's a chance for fans to get involved in the community, help make the city a cleaner place and also have the chance to meet some Nationals players, a few of whom are expected to make an appearance at the event.

Volunteers will also head to Nationals Park after the event and enjoy lunch provided by Hard Times Cafe, receive a commemorative Green-Up t-shirt and collect two tickets to Sunday's Dream Foundation Day presented by Waste Management in which the Nationals will take on the New York Mets at 1:35 p.m. Volunteers will also be recognized for their work during a pregame ceremony.

The cleanup will take place this Friday, July 29 from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m.

To take part in this event, simply show up to Diamond Teague Park at the designated time, located at 100 Potomac Avenue SE.
