Where: Staging area is the IWLA Lake then hike to Clopper Mill Ruins in Seneca Creek State Park
Come out and get dirty, do some good, and have fun! On Sunday April 22—which is Earth Day proper—the IWLA Rockville Chapter will host the second annual cleanup around the old Clopper Mill ruin in Seneca Creek State Park in partnership with the Friends of Seneca Creek State Park and park staff.
The Chapter Lake is the staging area and from there volunteers hike (bushwack) in to the mill site, and bring trash out, via our swing bridge, using a path under the Clopper Road bridge. This is a rare opportunity to visit the old mill site—which you can see standing right along Clopper Road (just below Waring Station Road). And after all that hard work, there will be lunch! So make a morning/early afternoon of cleaning up trash.
