Adopt A Stream Cleanup of Bull Run

March 5, 2011 9:00 am to 12:00 noon

Location : Bull Run downstream from the Route 28 Bridge

There was only a small group of four volunteers on hand for our first Bull Run Adopt A Stream Cleanup for 2011.
As it happens trash was surprisingly light along the stretch we were working on considering that our last event there was back in November.

Eight bags of trash were collected just downstream from the Route 28 Bridge. Another two bags of trash were previously collected that week from the vincinity of Little Rocky Run. Total weight, 183 pounds.
