Description

Come on out for Earth Day! For the joy of doing something really good for our environment!

On 4/22 - Paddle the Channel - Clean-up Event organized by Green The Wharf

1-5pm: Clean up

Meeting on the Seventh Street Pier

5pm to ?: Celebrate Location TBD

Your GPSA, Green the Wharf, and neighbors are planning an Earth Day event to clean the Washington Channel from the Recreation Pier at 7th Street SW to the Titanic Memorial at P St SW by kayak or with nets from the Piers. We are partnering with the Alice Ferguson Foundation who will provide free gloves and bags, and with Gangplank Marina and the Wharf who are providing recycling, trash removal and an extra manned boat.

It’s going to be great! The whole SW community is invited!

On land, we will be walking the Piers with the nets you bring or we will have a limited amount available here.

There will be a short water safety and trash collection training session beforehand with all participants.

Register for free with Eventbrite so we can prepare a great day!

Let's increase awareness of what ends up in our waters and ultimately in our oceans. Let's clean our local water.

We appreciate the support:

- The Alice Ferguson Foundation, which provides trash bags, gloves, and clean up support. In exchange the foundation will collect data from our clean up which can be used to influence future regulations and policies.

- Wharf DC, Surfrider Foundation DC, and local businesses are all IN as well!
