Annual Potomac Cleanup Day

  • Fletcher's Boathouse 4940 Canal Road Northwest Washington, DC, 20007 United States (map)

Take part in the biggest annual Potomac River cleanup of the year! Get your hands dirty for clean water and help restore healthy shorelines by removing litter, debris, and trash from local lands along the Potomac. 

We'll be working as part of the Alice Ferguson Foundation's Annual Potomac River Cleanup. Last year more than 13,000 volunteers from across the region removed 447,000 pounds of trash from the Potomac's shorelines. That's the weight of 31 African elephants!

We'll be out at two locations this year!
