The Potomac River Watershed cleanup is an annual event held by the Alice Ferguson Foundation which is located in Accokeek, MD. They have removed over 6 million pounds of trash from the Potomac since 1989, with the help of volunteers. The volunteers in this are CRITICAL! And don't worry, not everyone is literally in the water but we are cleaning up areas alongside the water also.
Jump in and help out this year while meeting your neighbors on Saturday, April 5th between 9am - 12pm.
You'll make a huge difference in the community and you'll still have most of your Saturday free!
Our community leads a cleanup site and they make it extra fun by having coffee and donuts for the participants in the morning and also a BBQ afterward. Again, a great way to fellowship with your neighbors and community.
For information on how to volunteer, lead a cleanup site or sponsor the event, go to the Cleanup homepage or call 202.973.8203
