Roving Cleanups
Every month BIL members and friends select a different area to clean up.  The BIL also participates in the Chesapeake Bay Assoc Clean the Bay Day and the International Coastal Cleanup.   Watch  our Facebook Page for monthly dates.  Just an hour of your time makes a big difference in our neighborhood and waterways.
