Hard working volunteers from all corners of Northern Virginia and as far away as La Plata, Maryland came to help the Friends of the Occoquan clean up the Bull Run Park/Marina and the Occoquan Regional Park along the Occoquan river. 60 helpers were logged in and pulled out 30 bags of trash, a baby stroller, oil barrel, mattress, foam pieces, boards, a table, paint and tar buckets and several hub caps.
Boy Scout Troop 1369 under the supervision of garden expert Helga Perrin removed three truck load full of rubbish, weeds and over grown shrubs so the entrance of the Occoquan Regional Park will be ready for planting in the spring.
FOTO will conduct cleanup at all five sites along the river on Saturday, April 12, 2014 and landscape the entrance at the Occoquan Regional Park in Fairfax County.
Thanks go out to organizations such as the Virginia’s American Water, Phi Sigma Kappa, Boy Scout Troop 1369, John Rothrock and Duane & Reis DuBruyne who came out with their boats, and the many families who volunteered to spent their day making the Occoquan a cleaner river.
