2011 Cleanup at Marumsco Creek, Occoquan NWR

On Saturday, May 14, 2011 Prince William Trails and Streams Coalition cleaned trash out of Marumsco Creek in Veterans Park on to the Occoquan National Wildlife Refuge property. Eleven volunteers removed a total of 655 lbs. of trash; including 14 tires, 5 boards with nails, pieces of metal, plastic plant pots, plastic bottles, cans, a plastic bat, a plastic crate,  balls, Styrofoam and more. Trash bags, gloves, litter grabbers, and an Occoquan Wildlife Refuge permit were obtained through Prince William Soil & Water Conservation District’s Adopt-A-Stream Program and the trash was removed by PWC Department of Public Works. Access to the creek was arranged by private residents Sandra Dawson, Jim Zell and neighbors. It was a great day! The rain held off, but we still got muddy and wet!
