Annual Potomac Cleanup Day

  • Fletcher's Boathouse and Jones Point Park (map)

Join Potomac Conservancy and Potomac Riverkeeper Network at the biggest 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 9,000 volunteers from across the region removed 334,000 pounds of trash from the Potomac's shorelines. That's the weight of 83 hippopotamuses! 

Thank you to everyone that has signed up to #GetTrashy with us at Fletcher's Cove and Jones Point Park! These locations are now full! If you're still interested in volunteering, there are slots available at Seneca Creek (info below).


We'll Be Out At Three Locations This Year!

Fletcher’s Cove is located along the C&O Canal National Historical Park on the Potomac River, between Chain and Key Bridges. Just minutes from downtown Washington, DC, Fletcher’s has hosted fisherman and recreationists since the 1850s.

REGISTRATION CLOSED: Jones Point Park, Alexandria, VA

Jones Point Park is located along the Potomac River on the south end of Old Town Alexandria. It was a critical piece of the city of Alexandria's history as one of the largest centers for shipping, manufacturing, and transportation in the nation. Its lighthouse, built in 1855, is the last remaining riverine lighthouse in Virginia.
