Suggestions

Please join PRKN staff for a fun and productive morning on the beautiful Potomac. Gloves and bags will be provided. We will meet at the Carousel at National Harbor (not far from the Capital Wheel, GPS Coordinates are 38.7862097, -77.0164488). All volunteers will receive vouchers for complimentary parking in any of the National Harbor Garages or Carousel Lot (excluding the Gaylord Hotel and street meters), courtesy of our friends at National Harbor.

Participants should bring drinking water and wear clothes they don’t mind getting dirty. Volunteers must complete a safety waiver and we encourage folks to do this in advance. Waivers can be downloaded from our website: for Adults and for minors. Sign in starts at 8:30am at the National Harbor Carousel Lot. Hope to see you out on the river!

Following the orders from the governors of Maryland and Virginia and the CDC, we will be following safe social distancing practices at our river cleanup events. We are extending the registration time for our cleanups to be one hour long, starting 30 minutes before the scheduled event start time to prevent overcrowding. We will be taking steps to minimize contact at the registration table.
