Cleanup results – Neabsco Creek – March 3, 2018

Over 40 volunteers came out on a chilly and windy morning to participate in the cleanup, and remove trash which had been carried down Neabsco Creek by storm water.   Working at the wooded flood plain site behind Neabsco Eagles Park and the PWC Service Authority facility, volunteers gathered over 70 bags of trash and 28 tires.  Another crew worked along the creek in the vicinity of Neabsco Creek Court, where they gathered about 60 bags of trash and 7 tires.

Thanks to Scout Troop 501, and all of the other volunteers who devoted their time to cleaning up one of our waterways.

Here’s a gallery of photos from the cleanup.

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.
