October 23, 9:00 am - 12:00 pm EDT
Location: Oronoco Bay Park, Alexandria, VA
As a part of Potomac Riverkeeper Network's Trash-Free Potomac Campaign and Alice Ferguson Foundations Trash-Free Initiative, we are hosting River Cleanups in Alexandria and National Harbor from April until October! Join us to help us tackle the Potomac River's trash pollution!
Our Alexandria registration begins at 8:30 am at the foot of Madison St. in Oronoco Bay Park.
We need volunteers of all ages to help remove single-use plastics and trash washed along the bank of the river. Please be prepared and dress accordingly. Wear clothes you don’t mind getting a little wet and muddy. Please bring water (in your reusable water bottle, of course) and snacks. Parking is available at the end of Madison Street, and additional parking is available around the park.
We will provide gloves, bags, and trash pickers.
