2013 International Coastal Cleanup

Every year in September, Ocean Conservancy brings together volunteers and passionate people around the world for a one-day cleanup of trash at local coasts, rivers, and watersheds. Help to contribute to a healthier ocean and trash-free seas!

Ocean Conservancy mobilizes the International Coastal Cleanup—the world’s largest volunteer effort to clean up waterways and the ocean. This year's Cleanup will take place on September 21, 2013.

Our Task will be joining Arlingtonians for a Clean Environment at Barcroft Park in Arlington at 1PM. This park is located close to Shirlington, off of Four Mile Run Drive and S. Walter Reed Drive.

There is free street parking off of Four Mile Run, and S. Arlington Mill Drive (by Shirlington) or you can park in the Shirlington parking garage by the Library and Harris Teeter in Shirlington Village. If you are planning to metro into Arlington please email Julia: [masked].

    There are no cancellations so the Cleanup is still on for this afternoon. If you can arrive at 12:45 to sign up as a group, that would be great! See you this afternoon!

    Parking and Meeting Information for today: Parking Location: There is parking in the lot as well as the parking deck. Overflow parking is on the street along Four Mile Dr. There is construction underway at Barcroft park, so parking in the lot is limited. Since Saturdays tend to be a busy day at the park, please allow ample time for parking and locating your group.

    Meeting Location: We will meet at the Snack Pavilion located near the parking deck just passed the field that is under renovation. Look for ACE signs, or people in orange vests if you need help to find us.
