UPDATE: We are postponing our Cleanup Week due to high, turbid water with more forecasted rain. We are postponing the start of the cleanup until Saturday, August 22nd and the finish until Sunday, August 30th.
August is the time to again haul trash out of Middle River. Though our efforts may look a little different this year to meet physical distancing requirements that COVID-19 demands, we are still seeking volunteers who want to get wet and muddy! Volunteers– following physical distancing guidelines– will be on teams and each team will paddle and walk a designated stretch of the river collecting trash. As an alternative, volunteers may opt to clean up a section of roadway adjacent to a stream. Teams will use their canoes as barges and the trash will then be unloaded and hauled to a dumpster at the Virginia Eagle Distributing Co. in Verona, a partner in this effort. Other cleanup partners include the County of Augusta and Green Earth, LLC.
