2022 Big Neabsco Watershed Cleanup.

Join the Prince William Conservation District for water quality and plastic pollution awareness in Prince William County.
Come celebrate the County’s first Trash Trap and give a treat to this beautiful scenic site of the Potomac Heritage National Scenic Trail.
Organized by Prince William Trails and Streams Coalition (PWTSC), Woodbridge Potomac Community Civic Association (WPCCA) and the Conservation District’s Water Quality Partners for Clean Waterways in PWC.

Saturday, March 5, 2022 (9:00 am).

The trash cleanup will be conducted from two locations:

2. Neabsco Regional Park / Neabsco Boardwalk, at 15125 Blackburn Rd, Woodbridge, VA 22191.

Come to learn and see in first hand how floatables make their way into the Potomac River and the Chesapeake Bay.

In 2020, 247 adults and children came out to help clean up the watershed that empties into the Potomac River and collected enough trash to fill 260 large trash bags and 82 tires for a total of 3,840 pounds of trash. The number of volunteers went down in 2021 to 85 people due to the pandemic. Still, those volunteers collected 170 bags of trash and 21 tires for a total of 3,600 pounds of trash.
