The Potomac River Watershed Cleanup Day was organized by the Washington Metropolitan Chapter of Community Associations Institute (CAI) and the Alice Ferguson Foundation, a non-profit organization created to connect people to the natural world, sustainable agriculture practices, and the cultural heritage of their local watershed through education, stewardship, and advocacy. The volunteer event unites members of the community to protect the local environment and promote community action.
In addition to sponsoring the event, CMC also had three client communities participate as cleanup locations. Volunteers in Potomac Shores, a large, riverfront, CMC managed community with over 850 acres of open space in Dumfries, Virginia, picked up 30 bags of trash. Another CMC community, Riverside Conservancy, also participated in the watershed cleanup event. Volunteers at this homeowners association in Woodbridge, Virginia picked up 20 bags of trash. Volunteers at First River Farms, an SCS community in Alexandria, Virginia, collected four bags of trash and two bags of recyclable materials.
