River Shoreline Cleanups

For many years, the Port Tobacco River Conservancy has hosted shoreline cleanups at Chapel Point Park. These events have been hugely successful due to the wonderful efforts of community volunteers, civic organizations and local school groups.  These events not only help keep our river and beach areas looking beautiful, but they also help protect our Port Tobacco River wildlife by removing harmful plastics and debris.

PTRC typically sponsors three cleanup each season: April, July and September. Exact dates are posted in advance on our PTRC Facebook page and notices are also sent directly to our past participants. Cleanup hours (Saturday) are from 9:00am – noon. We provide gloves, bags, water and snacks. PTRC members will be on-site to coordinate. 

Interested in volunteering? 

Come out to enjoy the park and help make our river more beautiful. It’s a rewarding way to spend a few hours along the Port Tobacco River. No pre-registration is required.

Event Location:   Chapel Point State Park, 8160 Pisces Rd., Port Tobacco MD 20677.

Once in the park, take the park road to the right and follow to its end. The road will bend to the left and go through the woods to reach the Deep Point parking area where you will find the registration table.
