Take the plunge and help clean up the Patuxent River, Maryland's longest and deepest river. The Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission (WSSC), the Patuxent Riverkeeper, friends, neighbors and patrons of clean water are all part of the Annual Patuxent Trash Clean-Up being held on Saturday, March 31, from 9 a.m. to Noon. And you can join too.
