Sonny Bono Park needs work.
That’s why its across-the-street neighbor, Heurich House Museum, set out over the summer to raise money for the public space named for the famous singer and congressman. Next Saturday, the museum will put some of that money to work during a volunteer-led beautification day.
During the cleanup — which takes place at the intersection of New Hampshire Ave., 20th St. and O St. NW and lasts from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. — volunteers will meet with professional gardener and artist Kellie Cox to rip out dead plants, scoop out excess soil and plant new flowers.
Though volunteers are encouraged to bring gardening gloves, tools and bottled water will be provided.
