FODM & NPS River Cleanup on MLK Day of Service 2023

Please join the Friends of Dyke Marsh and the National Park Service on Monday, January 16, from 10 a.m. to 12 noon in celebration of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service with volunteer activities.

We will conduct a trash cleanup along the Potomac River shoreline. We will also target and remove invasive plants in Dyke Marsh. You may choose to participate in either activity.

Check in at a registration table in Belle Haven Park near the south parking lot or at the entrance to the Haul Road Trail. We will provide gloves, tools and trash bags. Wear sturdy, closed-toe shoes, long pants and sleeves, gloves and sun protection. Bring water. We kindly request that you not bring pets to this event. Participants will be notified in advance if these events will be canceled due to inclement weather.

If you can participate in either the trash cleanup or the removal of invasive plants, please register using this link:
