5th Annual Potomac River Cleanup at Mallows Bay Park
1440 Wilson Landing Rd, Nanjemoy, MD 20662In 2018, our Nation commemorates the 100 year anniversary of WWI. In Mallows Bay, the remains of more than 100 World War I-era wooden vessels are a symbol of our nation’s rich maritime heritage. Accordingly, the historic and cultural resources of this area are currently being considered for designation as a National Marine Sanctuary.
You can walk along the shore or bring/rent a kayak to help clean up areas among the ships and along adjacent shorelines. Join local historians, archaeologists and naturalists who will share the stories and interpret Mallows Bay as part of the cleanup activities.
