Sign Up for Spring Cleaning in a Park Near You!

Sign Up for Spring Cleaning in a Park Near You!

Spring is a great time to give your house a good cleaning and a great time to clean up your local parks, too. Set aside a few hours this spring to join a Watershed Cleanup at one of nine Fairfax County Parks on Saturday, April 1, 2017.

For a second year, the Fairfax County Park Authority is partnering with The Nature Conservancy to clean up our watershed. Join fellow volunteers and help remove tires, plastic bottles, cans and other debris from local waterways and help prevent trash from reaching the nation’s largest estuary, the Chesapeake Bay.

This is a great way for families, scouts, community groups and students in need of service hours to take an active role in caring for our parks and waterways. By recording what you remove, you’ll be helping scientists, ecologists and environmental organizations in their efforts to improve our environment.

Cleanup activities run from 9 to 11:30 a.m. Snacks, give-a-ways and other free, fun stuff like historic house tours and educational opportunities will take place at the work sites.

So, pick your favorite park from the list below and Register Online.

To register by email, contact Jen Dalke, volunteer program manager, at jdalke@tnc.org. For more information, Dalke can also be reached by phone at (434) 951-0572 (work) or (540) 335-1302 (cell, text).
