Partners came together on March 12, 2017 for another #RappRiverCleanup in the Fredericksburg area.
On March 5, 2017, Friends of the Rappahannock (FOR) joined volunteers from Common Ground Church to dive head first into the upper portion of the Rappahannock Canal, Canal Path, and Snowden Wetland for our first #RappRiverCleanup of 2017!
We had 22 volunteers of all ages come out to spend the day Serving the City and cleaning up the Rappahannock River. We found all kinds of crazy stuff in and around the canal including a shopping cart, street signs, plastic bottles, beer bottles, newspapers, single use plastic bags, couch cushions, and tennis balls galore!
Friends of the Rappahannock (FOR) and the Piedmont Environmental Council (PEC) are pleased to announce a new Headwater Stream Initiative designed to provide FREE technical assistance, project design, materials, and labor for the planting of native trees and shrubs in riparian zones on qualifying properties in the headwater counties of the Rappahannock River Watershed including: Rappahannock, Fauquier, Culpeper, Madison, Greene, and Orange Counties.
