Keep Loudoun Beautiful
Keep Loudoun Beautiful is gearing up for our annual canoe cleanup event. Join us as we paddle down the Potomac River collecting tires and litter found along and in the water.
This year’s cleanup event is set for Sunday, September 11th from 8:45 am to 2:00 pm, rain or shine. (There will be NO RAIN DATE).
We will meet at Riverside on the Potomac (44337 Spinks Ferry Rd, Leesburg VA 20176). From there, our favorite outfitter, River & Trails, will bring us, and the canoes, by bus to the put-in point. From the put-in point, we will paddle down the Potomac River picking up litter and tires. The trip will end back at Riverside on the Potomac where we will enjoy a pizza lunch.
The event fee is $30 per person. There will be 2 persons per canoe. The event fee includes the canoe, paddle, & safety vest, river guide, cleanup supplies, and a pizza lunch. The event fee helps to defray the cost of putting together the event and to avoid “no-shows”.
Volunteers must be at least 18 years old to participate.
Please wear closed-toed shoes and clothes you don’t mind getting wet. Bring a reusable water bottle, sunscreen, a towel, a hat, and a change of clothes. **This will be a plastic water bottle-free event.**
There is a limit of 25 canoes for this cleanup event, so click on the sign-up button below to reserve your canoe/spot before they’re all filled up!
