Potomac River Clean-up at Point Lookout State Park

April 9, 2022 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

Come help keep the Potomac River clean! Point Lookout State Park is located at the mouth of the Potomac River, so it is important that we keep our park clean of litter that can harm the river from Point Lookout to streams flowing through the Appalachians. Bring your whole family, groups are more than welcome! See you out there!
