So far, we’ve collected over 10,000 pounds of trash from the shore just this year! You read that right. OVER 10,000 POUNDS OF TRASH. Come out to help set an ALL-TIME RECORD HIGH.
- Saturday, August 13, 2016
In our April clean-up event, volunteers collected over 10,000 pounds of trash from the Potomac’s shorelines, shattering Potomac Conservancy’s trash stat from last year. Now we’re pushing to an all-time high of 15,000 pounds by the end of the season. !
So, grab a friend and sign up to be a part of the team that helps us reach our goal! Together we’ll keep the Potomac free of litter so this national treasure can remain a great place to bike, hike, paddle, and fish.
This event will be conducting from the shore and will not include stand-up paddleboards.
What you need:
- Close-toed shoes
- A smile!
What we provide:
All tools, drinking water, and supplies will be provided by Potomac Conservancy. And just because you took a stand for clean water, stick around for a special treat afterwards!
How to get there:
Parking at Jones Point Park is tight so we are encouraging all volunteers to carpool or take public transportation. Metrobus 10 A, 10 B, 10 R, and AT3 all stop just blocks from the entrance to the park. Feeling up for a bit of a walk before cleaning up our Nation’s River? The King Street Station (Blue/Yellow Line) is a 35-40 minute stroll from the park.
