Join us on September 11th at 11 a.m. asLeesylvania State Park will have a National Day of Service and Remembrance Cleanup.
Leesylvania State Park
As an Leesylvania State Park is situated along the Potomac River and is one of the major tributaries of the Chesapeake Bay. The river and bay provide thousands of Virginians with a livelihood, food, and recreational opportunities. What better way to pay our respects to the victims of the September 11th attacks than by cleaning up Leesylvania State Park to protect the lives of our fellow citizens?
On September 11, 2011 Leesylvania State Park will be having a service day of cleaning in remembrance of the victims of the tragedy that occurred ten years ago. Volunteers will be picking up trash and cleaning along Leesylvania State Park’s 3 miles of shoreline. My goal is to clean up as much of the shoreline as possible. I know that this is a huge task but with some dedicated individuals we can make a difference on the Potomac River, Powell’s and Neabsco Creeks, and the Chesapeake Bay. We will start at the visitor center at 11:00 with a moment of silence to honor of the victims of September 11. I hope to have enough people to separate into two teams. The first team will concentrate on the picnic area and its shoreline since those areas have been used heavily during the summer season. The second team would concentrate on cleaning the shoreline of Bushey Point where the tide deposits trash from other locations along the Potomac River. I strongly encourage you to come out to Leesylvania to help us clean the park, save the Chesapeake Bay, and honor the September 11th victims!
