Shenandoah Cleanup Day

  • Stella's Grocer 1501 Roseneath Road Richmond, VA, 23230 United States (map)

Hey, y'all! As y'all know...the Government is officially "reopened" for a short time. Allowing the National Parks to let in visitors for now. That means the work is just beginning for us here at Keep Virginia Cozy...most of our parks were damaged terribly during the month long shutdown. We are going to head back up to Shenandoah National Park and offer our services at all the wayside stations and restrooms in the park. Working from North to South. We will be helping with everything from litter pickups to cleaning the bathrooms to moving debris off the skyline drive and adjacent trails. We will be meeting in front of Väsen Brewing Company between 7:30 and 8am...leaving promptly at 8:15 and carpooling from there, so we can get to the park no later than 10am! This will be an all day event, so we won't be returning to Richmond until between 6-7pm. Which will be perfect for getting coffee from Stella's in the morning and brews from Väsen Brewing Company when we return! All cleaning gear will be provided as well as water and granola bars/fruits. We just ask that you wear appropriate clothing for the mountains in February. (i.e.: layers, layers, layers)

**There is also the high possibility of a stop at one of the fine breweries in the mountains on our way back into town.**
Hope to see y'all there!

Be kind. Smile at strangers. Pick up litter. Clean bathrooms if you have to. Help our National Parks stay gorgeous. Keep Virginia Cozy!
