Neabsco Creek cleanup – Saturday March 3, 2018

On Saturday, March 3, 2018 (9:00 am) we will partner with the PW Soil and Water Conservation District and sponsor a cleanup on Neabsco Creek in Woodbridge.  This is an area where trash accumulates after being swept downstream during rainstorms.  The cleanup area is PW County park property, upstream from the Metz Wetlands.  Parking for the event is at Neabsco Eagles Park (15801 Neabsco Road, Woodbridge).

A map of the cleanup area is shown below.  Please click here to register.  For more info contact neil.nelson@pwtsc.org

First Day Hike, Occoquan Greenway – Jan 1, 2018

The temperature was only 19 degrees but we still enjoyed the hike from Lake Ridge to the Town of Occoquan.  Thirteen participants completed the hike, following the planned trail route through the open areas around Hooes Run and then through the 64-acre wooded parcel which borders on Tanyard Hill Road.  This hike started at the offices of the Lake Ridge Association on Oakwood Drive; the route was about 3.3 miles.  Here’s a photo gallery from the hike.

First Day Hike – Occoquan Greenway Trail – January 1, 2018

Start the new year with a hike on the Occoquan Greenway Trail.  We’ll hike the planned trail route from the Lake Ridge Association offices to the Town of Occoquan, a distance of about 3.3 miles.  This section of the trail includes the open area along the Hooes Run section of the Occoquan Reservoir.

Meet at the parking lot of the Lake Ridge Parks & Recreation Association, 12350 Oakwood Drive, Lake Ridge, VA 22192.

Start time is 10:00 am, and the hike should take about two hours.

This is a one-way hike to the Town of Occoquan.  Please plan for your own transportation to return to the start point – with a partner, pre-position a car in Occoquan so it is available at the end of the hike, or have someone available to provide a ride.  PWTSC will have limited capability to provide transportation back to the start point.
