Stream Cleanup and Hot Dog Roast March 10th

Arlington County Park Rangers are calling on volunteers to help clean Four Mile Run at Glencarlyn Park on Saturday, March 10th, from 10:00 am to Noon. The Glencarlyn Citizens’ Association will host a hot dog and marshmallow roast after the cleanup.

Get outdoors and help Arlington restore its natural spaces. Great project for individuals, families, service clubs and school groups.

  • The clean-up area is from under the Arlington Blvd./Rte 50 bridge to where Long Branch enters Four Mile Run.
  • Trash bags and plastic gloves will be available for volunteers at the 3rd Street picnic pavilion starting at 10am.
  • Volunteers should wear long sleeve shirts and pants and should bring work gloves if they have them.
  • After the clean-up, the hot dog and marshmallow roast will be held at the 3rd Street picnic pavilion.
  • Invite lots of friends to help in the cleanup and enjoy the roast.

Pippy and Matt Sickbert and Brandon Hemel are coordinating the event. Please email them at to let them know if you are thinking about attending, so they can plan for the food. If you didn’t get a chance to contact them, show up anyway because there will be extra food.
