September Parkway Pond and Horner Road Cleanup

Parkway Pond and Horner Road Cleanup

On Saturday, September 16, 2017, Habitat for Humanity Prince William County completed two clean up projects in Woodbridge. Volunteers started the day at the “Parkway Pond” which is Habitat’s official Adopt-A-Stream site. This is a frequent clean up site because litter from the nearby shopping center flows into it. The second cleanup site was a streambed at the end of D and E Streets near Horner Road. The aim of this project was to help keep pollutants out of Neabsco Creek. Habitat’s volunteers removed invasive kudzu, added rip rap for drainage, and planted trees along the stream.

In total, our volunteers picked up 13 bags of trash and other junk items with an estimated total weight of 825 pounds. Wheels, a bicycle and shopping carts were scattered amongst the litter.

Habitat for Humanity Prince William County would like to thank Tim Hughes from Prince William County Public Works for bringing these sites to our attention and for coordinating the site work with our volunteers!

Community Development starts with you.

Cleanup projects are part of Habitat for Humanity’s Neighborhood Revitalization (NR) program. We like to engage residents and community partners to revive neighborhoods and make them safe, inviting places to live. Community development projects improve the health and well-being of the general public. They revitalize public areas, remove blight, improve water quality and generally give residents improved access to public areas and a better sense of well-being and safety.
