About this Event

Meet us by the Anacostia Recreation Center within the park for this cleanup event:

Join United By Blue for a community cleanup event in Anacostia Park in celebration of World Oceans Day! 

We'll spend the morning cleaning the park and riverbanks in this historic waterfront park. Following the cleanup, volunteers can enjoy a complimentary lunch provided by Luke's Lobster. Volunteers will also receive a drink token to redeem a free beverage at Luke's Lobster's Farragut location. Meet us at the Shack to celebrate our cleanup and World Ocean's Day! A portion of the day's proceeds (after the first free drink) will benefit the Keeper Fund, dedicated to supporting coastal communities.  Please note, shellfish will be served at this cleanup.

Help us bring our mission of removing a pound of trash from waterways for every product we sell to life by joining us for this cleanup. We'll provide cleanup supplies, water and reusable water bottles, and snacks. You bring sturdy shoes, long pants, and your friends!

Parking is available in the Anacostia Recreation Center Lot.

This cleanup is held in participation with Capitol Hill Ocean Week
