On Saturday, April 11, 2015 from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m. (rain date April 25, 2015), Prince William Trails and Streams Coalition (PWTSC), a 501(c)3 organization, is conducting its 6th annual clean-up of the upper Occoquan River, from nine different sites along 25+ miles of the Occoquan River. The clean-up ranges from Cedar Run/Broad Run, through Lake Jackson, and from the base of Lake Jackson Dam to Hooes Run (south of Lake Ridge Marina). This cleanup is part of the Alice Ferguson Foundation’s (www.fergusonfoundation.org) Potomac River Watershed Cleanup. Friends of the Occoquan (www.friendsoftheoccoquan.org) will also be holding a cleanup at different sections of the Occoquan River on April 18, 2015.

PWTSC is partnering with the Prince William Soil and Water Conservation District and Prince William County Parks and Recreation along with a number of home owners associations, civic associations, businesses, and volunteer groups to accomplish this major 25+-mile river clean-up. During last year’s clean-up, 153 volunteers pulled 7,900 pounds of trash out of the Occoquan River and this year we hope to get more help to remove even more!

PWTSC needs experienced kayakers, canoeists and jon boaters to sign up for this major on-the-water conservation effort. Some kayaks and canoes will be available for loan provided by Penguin Paddling (at Hooes Run) and the Prince William County Parks and Recreation Department (at Lake Ridge Marina). Please visit www.pwtsc.org for more information and to register for this event or contact Ed Dandar at efdandar@verizon.net or 703-791-6158.
