All volunteers should check in at the Visitor Center before being directed to a cleanup spot on-site.

This year's event will also include educational watershed activities for participants.

Please Note: Clean-up site is located at the National Colonial Farm, 3400 Bryan Point Road, Accokeek, MD. There are several clean-up locations on Bryan Point Road, please make sure you report to the above address.
