Recent storms have brought trash, debris and driftwood to the shores of the Patuxent River, interfering with the vital habitat needed by fish, birds and other wildlife to thrive. WSSC routinely holds these clean-up days to preserve and maintain the wildlife habitat and numerous recreation and fishing areas in its watershed.

You! WSSC will supply gloves and bags, but we need you to provide the muscle!

Special Note: This event is an opportunity for students in Prince George’s and Montgomery counties to obtain service hours.

If you can’t make it on Saturday morning, WSSC will be planting trees at Scott’s Cove from 1 to 4 p.m., on Saturday, March 9, at Scott’s Cove, 11000 Harding Road, Laurel, MD. WSSC has a list of other environmental stewardship opportunities that we will be conducting throughout the spring.
