Saturday: Paint Branch Trash Cleanup

Surfrider Foundation and the Anacostia Watershed Society are teaming up this weekend to clean up Paint Branch. Join us on Saturday, November 20, from 10 am to 1 pm. Please sign up for the Paint Branch event prior.

Paint Branch flows through Montgomery and Prince George's Counties. In 1974, Paint Branch was designated as Natural Trout Waters by the state of Maryland, and the stream supports a population of Brown Trout. This cleanup will help protect this fragile habitat, and stop the trash from flowing downstream.

Meet in the Acredale Park parking lot (first lot on the left after you turn onto Metzerott Rd from Route 1). Dress for cold weather and mud (long pants, sturdy shoes, etc). Cleanup supplies and snacks provided.
