2024 Oxon Cove Earth Day River Cleanup

April 27 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm

Join Potomac Riverkeeper Network and our partners as we bring our communities together to celebrate Earth Day by giving back!

We welcome volunteers of all ages to help remove single-use plastics and trash that has accumulated along the shoreline of Oxon Cove and Oxon Run. Please be prepared and dress accordingly. Wear clothes you don’t mind getting a little wet and muddy. (If you have knee-high rubber boots or waders we recommend wearing them so you can help us tackle the trash below the shoreline!) Please bring water (in a reusable water bottle, of course) and snacks.

In order to not over-crowd our volunteers, our event will be running in two shifts. One from 9am – 11:30am and the other from 12pm – 2:30pm. There will be access points on both the DC and the Maryland sides of the Cove.

DC volunteers will check-in at the entrance of Oxon Hill Farm Trail on DC Village Lane, SW. Maryland Volunteers will check-in at the Oxon Hill Bike Trail Parking Lot. Volunteer check-in will begin 15 minutes before the shift.
Please fill out the PRKN volunteer waiver HERE before arriving at our event. Any minors participating must have a parent or legal guardian attend with them and sign their waiver.
