Watershed Cleanups

Dedicated KLB volunteers gather to clean up Loudoun County waterways

Each year, weather-permitting, dedicated KLB volunteers gather to clean up Loudoun County waterways. At this event, we pick up, separate and bag trash including: tires, bottles, cans, and other general refuse. The 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 bags at NO COST to participants. We guarantee you’ll have fun while you clean up the Loudoun County waterways!
