Saturday: Ballston Beaver Pond Cleanup

If you’re looking for a way to enjoy the outdoors on a summer evening, stop by the Ballston Beaver Pond this Saturday July 28th from 5-7pm! Volunteers from Arlingtonians for a Clean Environment and Arlington County’s Community Role Models program will be cleaning the pond not just from the shore, but also from the pond itself.

ACE has arranged for two boats to be at the cleanup so some of the more intrepid volunteers can get out on the water and remove some of the ordinarily-inaccessible trash polluting the pond. Once the cleanup is finished, volunteers will celebrate a job well done at Bailey’s in the Ballston Common Mall, which is generously providing free food.

Meet at the Beaver Pond on Saturday at 5pm. It's adjacent to the end of the Fairfax Drive I-66 on-ramp. We'll gather at the observation deck overlooking the pond.


Sign up here! And if you're wondering if there are really beavers in the pond, the answer is here.
