Volunteers Needed for Clean The Bay Day!
VES Land Trust is seeking volunteers to help pick up shoreline litter and debris on Clean the Bay Day Saturday, June 6, 2015, from 9:00 a.m. to 12 noon. This year we will be cleaning up at Willis Wharf in Exmore.

Last year, more than 6,000 volunteers participated in Clean the Bay Day, removing approximately 110,000 pounds of trash along 460 miles of streams, rivers, and the Chesapeake Bay. Removing unsightly shoreline litter not only improves aesthetics but also enhances the health of our waterways and the fish and wildlife that depend on them.


To volunteer with VES Land Trust email stewardship@veslt.org or sign up for our Willis Wharf location at www.cbf.org/clean. Early registration is advised. This is a family-friendly event for people of all ages. Children under 16 should be accompanied by a responsible adult.
