With the arrival of Spring, the City of Laurel is gearing up for its annual Patuxent River Cleanup on Saturday, April 7, 2018.
Mayor Craig A. Moe announced this would be the City of Laurel’s 14th consecutive year participating in this state-wide event coordinated by the Patuxent Riverkeepers. The City will be one of many agencies hosting cleanups along the Patuxent River.
The staging area will be Riverfront Park, on Avondale Street, at the picnic area, starting at 9:00am.
Volunteers will be asked to assist in removing trash and debris from the Patuxent River, which will help the river flow better during rain events. Trash bags and gloves, along with some hand tools, will be provided and you are asked to please dress appropriately for cleaning up along the riverbank.
This is a great opportunity for students to get required community service hours, so be sure to bring community service forms with you to be signed.
