City Seeks Volunteers for 20th Annual Potomac Watershed Cleanup 

The City of Alexandria is seeking volunteers to participate in the Alice Ferguson Foundation’s 20th Annual Potomac River Watershed Cleanup (PRWC) and to join others across the region in cleaning up local streams and the Potomac River on Saturday, April 5, from 9:00 a.m. to noon. The City is hosting a cleanup site at Four Mile Run Park at the Mount Vernon Avenue crossing. For directions and a complete list of PRWC sites in Alexandria, visit www.hardbargainfarm.org/trash_initiative/rc_sitesalexandriava.html

The PRWC is the largest cleanup in the watershed, with more than 8,000 volunteers participating; last year, volunteers removed more than 200 tons of trash from regional streams. Volunteers should wear shoes and clothes that they do not mind getting dirty; trash bags and gloves will be provided. To volunteer, please contact Jesse Maines at 703.519.3400, ext. 166, or e-mail jesse.maines@alexandriava.gov.

Volunteers are also needed for additional sites throughout the region. For a complete list of PRWC sites, visit www.PotomacCleanup.org or call 301.292.5665.
