River Cleaning and Romantic Readings This Weekend Around Tysons

by Vernon Miles February 8, 2019 at 4:45 pm 0

It’s a little outside the usual area for weekend events, but volunteers are needed to help clean out the river access at Great Falls on Saturday.

If enough volunteers arrive to clear out the ravine in one day, the National Park Service will re-open river access from Great Falls on Sunday.

The National Park Service will provide trash bags, gloves, and pickers.

Volunteers should meet at the top of the ravine, near Overlook 3, and wear sturdy shoes.
