April 25th and 26th:
In celebration of Earth Day, join the staff of Friends (remotely!) for a weekend of independently led, COVID-safe, trash pick-ups. Pick your favorite river or stream spot, or a place in your neighborhood. Grab your gloves and bags, and pick up any litter you see. Then, send us a photo of yourself and your bagged litter along with a description of the location you chose to [email protected] by Monday, April 27th.
We will post your photos along with all of our other stewards’ successes. We’ll randomly select an entrant and award a $30 gift card to their choice of one of the following: Jackson’s Corner Coffee Roastery and Cafe (New Market), Curtain Call Coffeehouse Cafe (Mt. Jackson), Penelope’s Cafe (Edinburg), Woodstock Brewhouse (Woodstock), Brother’s Pizza (Maurertown), Crabby Maggie’s (Strasburg), or C&C Frozen Treats (Front Royal).
We would love to read about your event. So, feel free to send us a description of your experience. And, if you find a site for a future, organized clean-up event, let us know and we will contact you to come take a look.
We encourage you to share photos on social media with #northforkCOVIDtrashchallenge to help spread inspiration for our next self-led clean-up event.
Sign up here to be a part of this event. Please be sure to review the safety guidelines in our waiver and practice personal hygiene and social distancing before, during, and after your cleanup.
