The Alice Ferguson Foundation has come to the hard decision to cancel the Potomac River Watershed Cleanup for this year. They are following CDC and WHO recommendations and suspending public activities (including the Cleanup) for the next 8 weeks to ensure volunteers, partners, and staff are safe.  

Help improve Charles County's waterways and combat litter by volunteering in a watershed cleanup. Volunteer opportunities range from collecting litter to leading and organizing a cleanup site. Community and Adopt-A-Road groups are encouraged to participate at a site or establish a new site. This is an excellent opportunity for students and Scouts to earn community service hours.
