The Friends of the Mount Vernon Trail will be holding a trail cleanup from Belle Haven Park towards Alexandria as part of the Martin Luther King Day of Service. We need your help! Multiple floods this year mean that a large amount of garbage has washed up next to the trail, marring our beautiful view of the Potomac.
We’ll provide trash grabbers, trash bags and gloves. If you’re biking there make sure you have shoes that are comfortable to walk in and an extra layer to keep warm. Note that if the government is still shut down, the bathroom at Belle Haven Park and Jones Point will be closed.
When: Monday, January 21st from 10 to Noon
Where: Belle Haven Park (meet near the bathroom)
Why: Because you love the Mount Vernon Trail
