Description

Watershed Cleanup Day 2017 volunteers pose with the trash they collected


What happens when dozens of volunteers gather on the same day at two locations along the Potomac River? They make one HUGE impact!

Join Potomac Conservancy and Great Lakes Brewing Co at Jones Point Park on Saturday, April 14th from 9am - 12pm as we act local and do our part to clean up the river for Alice Ferguson Foundation's 30th Annual Potomac Watershed Cleanup.

Last year, more than 9,000 volunteers from across the region removed 404,549 pounds of trash from the Potomac's shorelines. That's the weight of 33 elephants!

So grab a friend and get your hands dirty for clean water! Together we'll keep the Potomac free of litter so our 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.

To make the day even more fun, our amazing partner, Great Lakes Brewing Co., will have giveaways for the first 50 volunteers to arrive on the day of the event. They will also be hosting an after-party for all of our volunteers!




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?
