Fairfax County residents can help clean up the Potomac and Occoquan watersheds this fall. The cleanups will take place at locations across the county from September through October.
The Northern Virginia Soil and Water Conservation District (NVSWCD) is partnering with the nonprofit Ocean Conservancy as part of the 2008 International Coastal Cleanup.
There are two ways to volunteer: become a site captain or help out at an already established cleanup site. More information about both options can be found at www.longwood.edu/cleanva/iccva.htm, or contact Dan Schwartz at the Northern Virginia Soil and Water Conservation District, 703-324-1422, TTY 711.
Last year, NVSWCD supported the International Coastal Cleanup, with neighborhood groups and individual residents cleaning up more than 20 sites across the county.
Between 1988 and 2005, 28,400 volunteers across Virginia have collected more than 1.2 million pounds of trash.
