9/11 Clean-up Locations in West Virginia

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone!


On the 10th anniversary of the September 11 attacks, ExploreWV had high hopes to begin an annual CITO Service Project that would consist of CITOs scattered through West Virginia each year on September 11th. Due to our busy schedule, we accidently missed the deadline to submit CITOs to Geocaching.com (woops!) but we are still hosting our Service Project with clean-up locations throughout the state if any geocachers are interested in participating.


We have partnered with Volunteer West Virginia and WVREAP to host these clean-ups and together, we have chose seven locations that are in desparate need of sprucing up. Those locations are:


Rich Mountain Battlefield (Randolph County)

N 38° 51.988 W 079° 56.160


Harpers Ferry (Jefferson County)

N 39° 19.390 W 077° 43.817


Tucker County Wind Farm (Tucker County)

N 39° 08.778 W 079° 34.563


Fountain Place Mall (Logan County)

N 37° 51.356 W 082° 02.626


Wine Cellar Park (Kanawha County)

N 38° 22.900 W 081° 43.979


Mt. Wood Park (Wood County)

N 39° 14.952 W 081° 18.441


Grand Vue Park (Marshall County)

N 39° 56.590 W 080° 43.960


Each clean-up project will take place on Sunday, September 11, 2011 and will last from 2:00pm until 4:00pm. Trash bags and gloves have been donated by WVREAP and will be available on-site for all volunteers. Please be cautious and wear proper attire when cleaning up litter.
