Girls Scouts of America - Arlington - Potomac River - Park and River Cleanup - June 14th

Girls Scouts of America - Arlington Park and River Cleanup was a success! The girls picked up trash and were taught that it drains to the river, lakes and then even to the ocean

Our Girls Scout Troop organized a “River Clean Up” next to Washington DC along the Potomac River. With the Washington Monument as our back drop and the Potomac River as our body of water to save from pollutants, our troop filled trash and other litter into 4 trash bags and helped the Potomac River from pollutants that may have made its way into the river.

Our Girls Scout Troop was learning about ways to help prevent run-off and trash polluting our Rivers. One of the troop leaders had heard about the various Beach Clean-ups that were happening in her home town in Huntington Beach and shared this idea with her Girls Scout Troop. They decided they could do something similar along the river in Washington DC.

A total of 20 girls showed up for the “River Clean Up” and 4 trash bags were filled. It was a great turnout and great lesson for the Girl Scouts. Thanks for the idea Drains to Ocean!
