Get Out! And Help RiverKeepers Clean Up the Potomac River

by Peggy Robin

National Harbor River Cleanup by Potomac Riverkeeper Network
August 14, 2021
8:00 AM-11:00 AM

Meet at the Carousel at NATIONAL HARBOR
137 National Plaza, Oxon Hill, MD 20745

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 Rivers trash pollution!

Our National Harbor registration begins 30 min before the start time of the event and will meet in the parking lot for the National Harbor Carousel.

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.

We will provide gloves, bags, and trash pickers.

At registration, we will ask you to complete a safety waiver to participate in the event. Any minors participating must have a parent or legal guardian attend with them and sign their waiver.

***Update regarding Covid-19 and 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. Masks covering the mouth and nose must be worn at the registration table and around volunteers. We will be taking steps to minimize contact throughout the entire event.


The “Get Out!” event of the week is published on the Cleveland Park Listserv and on All Life Is Local on Thursdays.
