WHAT: Ocean Conservancy is organizing an Anacostia River cleanup as the flagship event of its 32nd International Coastal Cleanup (ICC), the world’s largest single-day volunteer effort to remove trash from our beaches, waterways, lakes, rivers and parks. Last year, 330 volunteers recovered more than 2,500 pounds of trash from the Anacostia River, and this year is slated to be even bigger. The DC event, supported by Patagonia, will feature food, live music, and giveaways. Register to volunteer at www.DCCoastalCleanup.org.

For the second year in a row, volunteers will use the Clean Swell app (free for download on the App Store and Google Play) to contribute their citizen science data on the collected trash in real time to one of the world’s largest databases on ocean trash.

WHEN: Saturday, September 16, 2017
9:30 AM – 12:30 PM

WHERE: Kingman Island
Entrance at RFK Stadium Lot 6

A free shuttle service is available from the Stadium-Armory Station, accessible from the Orange, Blue, and Silver metro lines.
