  • Host an individual clean-up, which is just what it sounds like: you and family members getting some daily exercise with a pair of gloves, a trash bag, and whatever patch of the Corsica watershed means the most to you. Since organized events have been postponed, you can gather and deposit recyclables in our Queen Anne’s County igloos- specifically: glass, paper, cardboard, cans, and plastic bottles.
