Looking for a rewarding way to give back? Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge (NWR) is celebrating National Public Lands Day on Saturday, September 23, by hosting its annual litter cleanup. Help protect wildlife by volunteering to remove litter from refuge roadsides. In addition, the entrance fee for Wildlife Drive will be waived so that everyone has an opportunity to enjoy their public lands!
Blackwater NWR’s annual litter cleanup will take place on Saturday, September 23 from 9:00 a.m. until 12:00 p.m. Trash will be collected from roads around the refuge, beginning at the Education Building on Wildlife Drive. Participants are encouraged to wear boots, long pants, and brightly colored clothes for working along the roads. Trash bags, gloves, and safety vests will be provided. If you, your family, or your organization would like to register, or for more information, please contact Michele Whitbeck at 410-221-8157 or [email protected].
