Stewardship Virginia Cleanup of Bull Run

May 1, 2010 9:00 am to 12:00 noon

Location : Bull Run downstream from the Route 28 Bridge

13 Volunteers worked at our May 1st Adopt-A-Stream cleanup of Bull Run. It was a pleasant day in spite of the unseasonably warm temperatures.

Chapter members pause to look at a collection of tires in Bull. Paul Miller on the far left went into the stream to get them.

Participants included the usual suspects ; Ned Foster, Vinnie Caporale, Craig Osteen, Paul Miller as well as new Chapter members Joe Oravec, Gerald Waldrop, John Nagashima, Sharon Nagashima, Paul Gallagher & son.

Total weight of trash collected was 746 pounds which included 5 tires, a twin size mattress, a weber grill, 3 lawn chairs and and 28 bags of trash.

In addition to doing our usual trash removal , We also put up some new signage in English and Spanish at our riparian planting project as well as planting some more river oat plugs.

This event was part of Stewardship Virginia , a semiannual initiative of the Commonwealth of Virginia to encourage State Residents to participate in events and projects which preserve and protect the natural and cultural resources of Virginia.
