About this event

Join Potomac Riverkeeper Network (PRKN) in our mission to support a Trash-Free Potomac!

WE provide gloves, bags and grabbers/trash pickers.

YOU bring your enthusiasm for outdoor activities and good causes!

You are welcome to bring your kayak, boat, or paddle board. There is a $6 launch fee per vessel.

Boat rentals are available at Belle Haven Marina, but if you are not a paddler you still can reach the shore from the trail along the river.

**Due to protected shorebird nesting season, on the water capacity in the National Park land surrounding Belle Haven Marina is limited to 3 vessels at a time so we will be sending out paddling volunteers in shifts, but there will be plenty of opportunities along the trails throughout the marsh as well to do your part, pick up trash, and enjoy the scenery when you're not on the water! **

If you plan on entering the water:

Complete our water safety waiver

Bring your vessel and plan to pay the $6 launch fee, or call Belle Haven Marina ahead of time to reserve your rental - (703) 768-0018. Sign their acknowledgment of risk form here.

***Update regarding social distancing***

Following the orders from the governors of Maryland and Virginia and the CDC, we will be following safe social distancing practices at our river cleanup events. We are extending the registration time for our cleanups to be one hour long, starting 30 minutes before the scheduled event start time to prevent overcrowding at the registration table.
