Clean the Potomac River!
Time & Location
About The Event
The Potomac River is one of the largest rivers that flows into the Chesapeake Bay, and is the source of up to 75% of the drinking and washing water in the region. Littering, runoff, and trash contribute to a widespread problem that affects everyone. In addition to the impact litter has on the local environment, it ultimately makes its way to the ocean and can cause severe damage to ocean plant and wildlife in its existing state and as it breaks down over time. It is critical that we do our part to PREVENT trash from getting into the Potomac river and ultimately the ocean.
On 4/27 from 9:00AM-1:00PM, we will be picking up litter alongside the Potomac River in McLean, VA trash bags, gloves, trash pickers, etc. will be provided. All you need to do is bring yourself, your friends, your kids and get ready to pick up some trash! This is a big effort, and there is a lot of trash that needs to be picked up, so we will need about 40 people.
For every straw, plastic bag, flip flop, or candy wrapper that you pick up, you can know that you are making a huge impact on our environment which will help to keep our Potomac River clean and safe for all of us to enjoy!
Note: This event requires a ticket purchase of $10. Ticket sales will help to purchase 100 bouquets of flowers to be delivered to mothers of domestic violence on Mother's Day. So while you help out mother nature by cleaning up trash at Great Falls Park, you will also be helping out many mothers in need this Mother's Day! Your ticket is tax-deductible, so please keep the e-mail receipt after registration for your records.
One more thing.. Great Falls Park notified me that every volunteer will receive a FREE one time admission to any other national park for helping out with this event!
Thanks and I look forward to seeing you there!
