Trash Summit Background

The Potomac Watershed Trash Summit is a gathering of key stakeholders to educate, dialogue, plan and take action on strategies that lead to a Trash Free Potomac Watershed. This event provides a venue for elected officials, citizens and youth leadership to collaborate on strategies to eliminate trash from our waterways, communities, streets and public lands – including regional public policy, model Best Management Practices, business actions, and public education.

The Alice Ferguson Foundation (AFF) is coordinating this effort to address our serious regional trash problem from a watershed-wide approach in collaboration with a diverse network of key leaders and decision makers on federal, state, local and non-governmental They collectively showed support and commitment to work together to address this important issue.

*We value diverse viewpoints. If registration costs prevent you from attending, please email trash@fergusonfoundation.org to discuss other payment options. A limited number of scholarships are available.
