POTOMAC RIVER WATERSHED CLEAN UP INITIATIVE

July 11

Help Us Keep the Potomac Trash-Free, Join us at National Harbor!

Potomac Riverkeeper Network is participating in the Alice Ferguson Foundation’s 32nd Annual Potomac River Watershed Clean Up Initiative. These events are basic to our mission of enhancing public use and enjoyment of local rivers. National Harbor is a fantastic PRKN supporter, so we are thrilled to give back to this community asset.

Clean-ups will be held every second Saturday of the month from April to October at National Harbor.

Please join PRKN staff for a fun and productive morning on the beautiful Potomac. Gloves and bags will be provided. We will meet at the Carousel at National Harbor (not far from the Capital Wheel, GPS Coordinates are 38.7862097, -77.0164488). All volunteers will receive vouchers for complimentary parking in any of the National Harbor Garages or Carousel Lot (excluding the Gaylord Hotel and street meters), courtesy of our friends at National Harbor.

Participants should bring drinking water and wear clothes they don’t mind getting dirty. Volunteers must complete a safety waiver and we encourage folks to do this in advance. Please bring a signed waiver to the event; waivers can be downloaded here. Sign in starts at 10:30am at the National Harbor Carousel Lot. Hope to see you out on the river!
