Join Lynnhaven River Now and the Kings Forest Civic League for this neighborhood park and river cleanup on the Buchanan Creek tributary.

As you can see from the Google Map of Birchwood Malibu Park, this area offers lots of family-friendly cleanup opportunities in the fields and woods of the park, and along Buchanan Creek.

There will also be teams in canoes and kayaks working from the water on Buchanan Creek.
