Colonial Heights Recreation & Parks, the Chesapeake Bay Foundation and other partners across Virginia are recruiting volunteers for “Clean the Bay Day” scheduled for Saturday, June 2, 2018 from 9:00 am until 12:00 pm. The City of Colonial Heights clean-up location for adults 18+ is Appamatuck Park located at 151 Archer Ave. Colonial Heights, VA 23834.
Each year, on the first Saturday of June, thousands of Virginians simultaneously descend on the rivers, streams, and beaches of the Chesapeake Bay watershed to remove harmful litter and debris. Thirty years strong, Clean the Bay Day is a true Virginian tradition and an annual opportunity for families, military installations, businesses, clubs, civic or church groups to give back to local waterways.
This short, three-hour annual event has a massive cumulative impact. Since 1989, Clean the Bay Day has engaged over 152,000 volunteers, who have removed approximately 6.4 million pounds of debris from nearly 7,390 miles of shoreline in Virginia!
