Our volunteers help remind us the impact we can have when we come together as a community to make a difference! Last year alone, more than 600 volunteers joined us to remove more than 6,100 pounds of trash from the Potomac's shores. Now that's progress!

Dedicating your time to improve the Potomac's lands and waters is a powerful and inspiring way to fight for clean water. So bring a group of your friends, family, co-workers or neighbors and enjoy a wonderful day of service outdoors along the Potomac River!

Potomac Stewards - Monthly Service Program

In partnership with the National Park Service, Potomac Conservancy's Potomac Stewards program hosts monthly cleanups along the river. Most frequently, you can find us at Fletcher's Cove in Washington, DC, and the River Center at Lock 8 in Cabin John, MD, in the C&O Canal National Historical Park. Volunteers join us for a morning of service along the Potomac where they help clean up trash, remove invasive plants. and restore recreational and water access trails.
