Saturday: Join the Potomac River Watershed Cleanup!

Arlingtonians for a Clean Environment is hosting a volunteer event on Saturday as part of the Potomac River Watershed Cleanup! Here are the details:

Potomac River Watershed Cleanup
Saturday, March 31, 9:00 a.m. to noon. Join ACE, the
Alice Ferguson Foundation, and the Potomac Conservancy for a Potomac River cleanup project. The meeting location is on the Virginia side of Chain Bridge, under the GW Parkway in the small parking lot at the intersection of Glebe Road and Chain Bridge Road. For directions and tips, see our Streamtips page. Register for the cleanup at 703-228-6406 or email us!

What Are the Conditions at Chain Bridge?
The terrain along the Potomac is a little rugged, so you should be prepared to hop on rocks and cross streams if you want to get down to the river. There are some less demanding spots too, so that shouldn't prevent anyone from coming.

What Are the Directions to Chain Bridge?
Chain Bridge is at the feet of Glebe Rd and Chain Bridge Rd. If you are going north on Glebe, as you descend into the Potomac valley, just as the road takes a sharp right turn toward the bridge, there is a parking lot on the left under the GW Parkway. That's our rendezvous. If you're coming from 495, Fairfax, etc. on Chain Bridge Rd, the road ends at a light. Turn right (instead of left onto the bridge) and the rendezvous is right in front of you. If you are familiar with the area, park above the area on Randolph Street and walk down the bike path. The area is accessible by bike from Military Road, crossing the overpass over Glebe Road, and proceeding down Randolph one block to the trail down into the valley.
