Cacapon River Cleanup—Volunteer Opportunity

Hands-on, dirty, and gratifying! Roll up your sleeves and help the Friends of the Cacapon River cleanup our river. 

Join our passionate volunteers who are working hard this year to keep the Cacapon River beautiful and clean by removing trash, litter, and old tires from our river’s waters. 

Our first river cleanup of the year will kick off on Saturday, April 13, 2019, at 11 AM, at the Great Cacapon Public River Access Site in Morgan County. 

This family-friendly volunteer event is a wonderful place to meet other like-mined river people while helping clean up the Cacapon River!

Please wear appropriate clothing, such as boots and long pants that you don’t mind getting dirty. We encourage you to bring your own water bottle, too. 

The cleanup with start with a very brief introduction on the Friends of the Cacapon River and on cleanup safety. We’ll provide the bags, work gloves, and “trash grabbers,” as well as drinking water and some light snacks. Then it’s off we go to remove as much trash as we can!

We hope to see you there!

Directions: The Great Cacapon Public River Access Site is located off Rt. 9, about 1/2 mile from the U.S. Post Office in Great Cacapon. It’s under the green trellis bridge and marked with a brown street sign that reads “Public River Access.” If you’re coming from the Berkeley Springs area, you’ll make a left turn on the gravel road before the green bridge. If you’re headed from the Paw Paw area, you’ll make a right turn after the bridge.
