Trash Clean Up on Hunting Creek
Help us clean up the Hunting Creek watershed adjacent to Interstate 495! The trash and debris that pile in from the Potomac River and Cameron Run harms the environment and hinders outdoor activity around the area. We hope you'll join us!

About the event
This event will be a land-based cleanup of the shoreline of Hunting Creek just west of the parkway. Low tide will be at 3:00 pm, so we will meet at 2:00 to go over guidelines and then get started while the water is low and trash can be easily collected along the shoreline by foot. Doing this land-based cleanup in winter works well because the marshy plants have died back, leaving trash readily exposed and accessible at low tide. We will meet at the Porto Vecchio Condominiums before continuing down the shoreline.
Volunteers should wear sturdy footwear that can get dirty and dress according to the weather. We will reschedule in case of rain or extremely low temperatures. Please RSVP if you plan to attend so that we can ensure you sign the required waivers and get key information leading up to the event! If you have any questions, reach out to Partnerships Coordinator Amelia Wilt at firstname.lastname@example.org.
