Friends of Riverbend Park

Friends of Riverbend Park (FORB) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit citizens group dedicated to the responsible stewardship and preservation of the undisturbed natural beauty at Riverbend Park on the Potomac River, and to safeguarding this Park as a natural 'classroom' for the inspiration, enjoyment, and education of all park visitors.
