About this event

As a part of Potomac Riverkeeper Network’s Trash-Free Potomac Campaign and Alice Ferguson Foundations Trash-Free Initiative, we are hosting River Cleanups throughout the watershed from May until October! Join us to help us tackle the Potomac Rivers trash pollution!

We need volunteers of all ages to help remove single-use plastics and trash that has accumulated along the shoreline. Please be prepared and dress accordingly. Wear clothes you don’t mind getting a little wet and muddy. Please bring water (in your reusable water bottle, of course) and snacks.

Our National Harbor registration begins 30 min before the start time of the event and will meet in the parking lot for the National Harbor Carousel. We will provide gloves, bags, and trash pickers at the registration table.

Please fill out our 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.

***Update regarding Covid-19 and social distancing***

Although this is an outdoor event, we will still follow safe social distancing practices at our river cleanup. Masks covering the mouth and nose must be worn at the registration table and around volunteers. We will be taking steps to minimize contact throughout the entire event.
