Trash Free Potomac Network - Connecting for a Trash Free Watershed


Welcome to the Trash Free Potomac Network, a database designed to foster connections between volunteers, organizations, businesses, and governments who are involved with solving the litter problem in the Potomac Watershed. Throughout the year, event leaders will be posting volunteer opportunities, local cleanups, and workshops to be involved with. You can find these opportunities by clicking “Find an Event” and searching. If you are interesting in posting your own events, you will first need to register as an event leader. Click on “Register an Event” to get started.

The Trash Network also hosts the sites for the Annual Potomac River Watershed Cleanup. Along with utilizing this site, we encourage all site leaders and volunteers to read through the list of responsibilities, safety information, and resources found at potomaccleanup.org

If you have any questions about the database, please email potomaccleanup@fergusonfoundation.org

Fort Stanton Park was created in 1926 to preserve the hilltops where the Union army constructed Fort Stanton and Battery Rickets to defend the Nation’s Capital during the Civil War. The remains of their earthworks and ditches can still be seen in the woods.

Its more than 150 acres of woods include two stream valleys, stands of towering poplar trees, commanding views hilltop views across the city, and small rock outcroppings.

?Sadly, years of littering and dumping have polluted the landscape. Invasive plant such as kudzu, bittersweet, and Asian wisteria have destroyed whole areas of forest and threaten others.
