Description

Potomac Watershed Cleanup volunteers at Jones Point Park

One day, one river, one big impact!

Join Potomac Conservancy and Potomac Riverkeeper Network at Jones Point Park as do our part to clean up the River for Alice Ferguson Foundation's Annual Potomac Watershed Cleanup. Last year, more than 9,000 volunteers from across the region removed 334,000 pounds of trash from the Potomac's shorelines. That's the weight of 83 hippopotamuses!

So grab a friend and get your hands dirty for clean water! Together we'll keep the Potomac free of litter so this national treasure can remain a great place to bike, hike, paddle, and fish.

We're also hosting volunteers in Washington, DC, at Fletcher's Cove. Sign up here!


What you need:

  • Close-toed shoes
  • A smile!

What we provide:

Everything else!

All tools, drinking water, and supplies will be provided by Potomac Conservancy.




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 through lovely Old Town Alexandria to the park.



Group of 5 or more?

Contact Joelle at community@potomac.org to sign up!
