This spring cleaning effort provides a healthy checkup for local waterways. Help prevent tires, plastic bottles, cans and other trash and debris from reaching the nation’s largest estuary, the Chesapeake Bay. And by recording the types of items you remove, you’ll be helping scientists and ecologists in their efforts to improve our environment.
Snacks, give-a-ways and other free, fun activities like historic house tours and educational opportunities will take place at the work sites. This project is ideal for families, service groups, Scouts and individuals.
