If Virginia's waterways aren't important to you, they should be! These vital tributaries affect everything from your drinking water to the quality of the fish you eat. Consider volunteering for the Virginia Waterway Cleanup 2014. Part of the Ocean Conservancy's International Coastal Cleanup, this annual community service event has enlisted more than 68,000 Virginians so far in the name of clean water. These initiatives not only remove pollution from the waterways, but they also help the state of Virginia to collect data about what types of trash and litter end up as pollution.
Cleanup sites are held at different times and locations all over Virginia, so be sure to check the website for the site nearest Norfolk Crossing. With so many locations, it's easy to get involved to help make Virginia a better place!
