Come out to clean up the Po­tomac

Maryland Independent - - Community Forum -

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.
