Shoreline Cleanup for National Public Lands Day

 Shoreline Cleanup on National Public Lands Day


Give back to Mason Neck State Park by helping clean up the Park's shoreline on National Public Lands Day, September 28.  Park visitors are very good about not leaving trash, but large amounts of trash float down the Potomac and Occoquan Rivers and end up on the Park's shoreline.  This is the last cleanup of the year so we want to get as much trash cleaned up as possible.  You can walk along the shoreline or take out a canoe and clean the areas that are not accessible from the shore. 

Make sure you dress for the weather and wear clothes you can get dirty and shoes or boots that can get wet.  We'll start the cleanup and assign cleanup crews at 9 AM sharp.  We'll provide work tools for getting the job done, including large trash bags.  Bring your own gloves if you have them.  The park will have a few for those who don't have their own.

And after the work is done, stick around and join one of our afternoon programs for some fun while learning about the park and its resources or take a walk on one of the Park's trails.

The Friends of Mason Neck State Park will provide light snacks and reusable water bottles for those who don't bring them.  

There is free parking/admission for this day.

For questions, please call the Park at 703-339-2385.
