Mattaponi River Clean-Up
The Mattaponi River Clean-up Youth Job Training and Employment Program will offer many benefits to Caroline County including stewardship, job training and environmental awareness for the young adults employed. Removal of trash and an inventory report will enhance the Mattaponi as resource for the community and offer additional opportunities to leverage this resource. StreamSweepers will train 5 local age young adults (18 and over) to clean and inventory 13 miles of the Mattaponi River in Caroline County, VA. The stretch to be cleaned begins at the Rt. 607 crossing at Paige and extends to the Rt. 301 crossing. The proposed project is partially funded by Caroline County, and from a grant from the Luck Foundation. For the project to be completed, we will need to raise an additional $15,000.
