Come out to clean up the Potomac
I am writing to request the help of residents for the upcoming Potomac River Watershed Cleanup. The cleanup will be held on April 16 from 9 a.m.-noon at Marshall Hall Park (rain or shine). Marshall Hall Park is located at the western end of Marshall Hall Road (Route 227), 4 miles from Route 210. Once again, this site is being sponsored by the Southern Maryland Audubon Society. It is in conjunction with the Alice Ferguson Foundation, which is coordinating all of the cleanups being held on the same day along the Potomac River Basin.
In previous years, many volunteers participated in the cleanup, including high school students working on their community service requirements, scout groups, church groups, and businesses, as well as residents of all ages who are concerned about the environment in which we live. Every year, after the volunteers are done there is such a great difference in the appearance, safety, and usefulness of the shoreline. The Southern Maryland Audubon Society hopes that concerned citizens and businesses will again show up to help heal the Potomac.
Gloves, trash bags, drinks, and snacks will be provided. So, remember April 16, and we hope to see you there. Just show up at the boat ramp parking lot and a representative from Audubon will be there to assist. If you have any questions or want more information, please call 301-283-6317 or email at rdlukinic@ gmail.com.
