Clean the Bay Day – Cancelled!

June 22 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

June 22, 2024 – After great consideration, tomorrow’s clean up day has been CANCELLED. Due to the weather forecast and heat warning for tomorrow, we have decided to cancel for the safety of our incredible volunteers.

We are looking to plan a make-up date for sometime later in the year, if possible. Please know how grateful we are to those who had signed up to help. We hope we can see you again soon!

Stay cool, stay safe, and have a wonderful weekend!


Come out to Historic Sotterley for a volunteer Clean the Bay event! Historic Sotterley and the Chesapeake Bay are both national treasures, and we want to keep it that way!

When trash and plastics make their way into the tributaries feeding the bay, they largely get trapped in the local waterways and break down into microplastics. Instead of washing out to the ocean, 95% of these plastics stay trapped in the Bay ecosystem, damaging the local habitat of crabs, oysters, and fish. The best way to combat the plastic pollution is to stop it before it breaks down in the water – and you can help!

On Saturday, June 22, from 9:00am to 12:00pm, Sotterley will be hosting a Clean the Bay Day for volunteers to help collect trash along the water fronts and across the property.

This volunteer opportunity is family-friendly. Anyone 5 years and older is invited to help, and it’s a wonderful opportunity to teach little ones a sense of community by helping to keep it clean and safe. Children learn by example.

In need of a corporate team project, a church team project, a family project, community service hours, a scout badge, something to do, then this is for you! No experience necessary, just the desire to help.

Please sign-up to help so that we know how many helping hands we have for the project. Plan to arrive 15 minutes prior to the start time and check-in at the Farm Building to the right of the Visitor Center. We recommend hats, gloves, sunscreen, bug spray, and shoes and clothes you are not afraid to get dirty.
