Time: 8-10 a.m.

Location: Washington Sailing Marina, Daingerfield Island, Alexandria

This event is co-sponsored by EcoAction Arlington and the Washington Sailing Marina.

Join EcoAction Arlington at our first Potomac River Kayak Cleanup. We will cleanup the Potomac River around Daingerfield Island and the mouth of Four Mile Run. Our partners are the Washington Sailing Marina (WSM) and the National Park Service (NPS). We will follow WSM safety protocols and there will be a Rescue boat at the cleanup. We ask that you have no open wounds due to levels of bacteria in the Potomac River and that you sign waivers from WSM and the NPS.


The cleanup will be followed by a simple breakfast provided by Washington Sailing Marina and will be as zero waste as possible.
