We are always excited to have residents join us for the Potomac Watershed Cleanup. All our volunteers must register and complete an application through Reston Association’s volunteer system (Volgistics). Once you create an account and complete the application, you can search the Volgistics calendar for the Soapstone site for the Potomac Watershed Cleanup.

Gloves, trash grabbers, and bags will be provided. Please wear appropriate clothing to include long pants, long sleeve shirts, and closed told shoes/boots. If you have rubber boots, bring those to help clean trash out of the stream.

A pizza lunch at the Walker Nature Center, located at 11450 Glade Dr, Reston, VA 20191, will immediately follow the event.
