WATERSHED CLEANUPS
WATERSHED CLEANUPS
Dedicated KLB volunteers gather
to clean up Loudoun County waterways.
At each event, we pick up and bag trash,
including, tires, bottles, cans, and other
general refuse.

Two Classic Watershed Cleanups Planned for 2018!

Goose Creek Cleanup:  May 5, from 9am to around 3 pm, we’ll clean up the banks and shallows of
a section of Loudoun County’s scenic Goose Creek and tributaries. Registration opens April 1, so
reserve your seat before they're gone.  The backup date is May 6 in case of weather challenges.

Potomac River Cleanup:  Sunday, August 5, (Now September 9  due to forecasted river
conditions
) from 9am to around 3 pm, we’ll clean a section of the Virginia shoreline of the
Potomac.  Registration opens June 15, so be sure to reserve your seat as they are limited.  Until
then, you can see what we did last year by checking-out the event recap
here and see you soon!   
Weather backup date is August 12 and seats may still be available.

Event Description:
Canoes, river rafts, life jackets, paddles, and professional river guides from River & Trail Outfitters,
www.rivertrail.com will be provided at no cost to participants. Each event ends with free
refreshments and special KLB commemorative T-shirts for all.

For each canoeing and rafting event, KLB will transport participants upstream to where we will
have a safety and orientation talk, and receive our life jackets, canoes, rafts, and refuse bags. We
guarantee you'll have fun while you clean up the Loudoun County waterways.

All participants need to complete, sign, and return
registration forms and  liability waivers to take
part in the canoeing and rafting events.
NO EXCEPTIONS.  Click on the two links to download
these forms. For more information contact us at:
info@keeploudounbeautiful.org.

Must be at least 8 years old. All those under 18 will require signed permissions from parents or
guardians. NO EXCEPTIONS.

Wear clothing and sturdy footwear that
are weather appropriate and can get wet
and dirty. No sandals, open-toed shoes,
or bare feet. Changes of clothing left in
your car are recommended for the end
of all events.

As needed, bring your own drinks in
reusable bottles, snacks, sunscreen,
hats, gloves, and rain gear for use while
afloat. If you bring a camera, cell phone, car keys, or other items needing protection, bring a
waterproof “dry” bag or container.

KLB will bring water and lemonade in coolers, lunch, and all the
cleanup supplies.
Loudoun County's
beauty is not simply
in the eye of the
beholder...
It's in our hands as
well.
