Trees of Mount Pleasant StoryMap

Mt. Pleasant is known for its rich and diverse cultural life, and its beautiful tree-lined streets. Arrive in the neighborhood from any direction and you will soon find yourself under the canopy of a large tree. Once planted with American Elms, today you will see giant Red Oaks, shimmering Lindens, handsome Willow Oaks, and newly planted Redbuds, London Planes, and Sweetgums in its diverse canopy. 

Explore Mt. Pleasant’s beautiful trees in this StoryMap and learn their unique stories.

Mount Pleasant Villagers Respond to Covid

As you probably know by now, the Covid-19 virus has mutated to become less deadly but more infectious. Happily, there is a new, bivalent vaccine available that targets both the old and the new variants of Covid. According to the CDC and the Office of the DC Mayor, now is the time to get your booster. The vaccine is free and available through pharmacies, health centers, and the DC government. For more information, contact your health care provider or the Mayor's information site. The Ward 1 vaccination site is located at 1000 U Street NW.
