City Beautification

We are very excited about the upcoming 2017 Keep Poquoson Beautiful event which will be held on April 9th. Not only do we get to “beautify” the City, we get to work with all of our wonderful volunteers. We have several new events and one that is very familiar, but as always we need your help!
Help Our Elderly/Disabled Clean Up Around Their Homes
If you know of a neighbor, family member, or any resident that would benefit from having several willing and able-bodied volunteers come to their home to do spring yard cleaning and/or small repairs, please provide their name and contact information so that we may inquire if they would like to be included in this event.
Poquoson City Seal
Spruce up the Teen Center
This building is in need of landscape work, door and handrail painting and some minor repairs. As always we will provide materials, but we need your labor to get the job done.

Plant Swap
Not sure what a plant swap is or how it works? Bring in your annuals, perennials, small shrubs or trees and/or vegetable plants potted and labeled. Staff will assign a value to the plant(s) and give you vouchers for that amount. When we begin the swap, you may use your vouchers to purchase new plants for your yard. Plant drop off is between 9 a.m. and 10:45 a.m. and purchasing starts promptly at 11 a.m. It is our hope that this will become an annual event.

Litter Pickup at Messick Point & Amory’s Wharf
This cleanup activity is always a fun time to share with friends/family and a terrific way to teach our youth how littering can be detrimental aesthetically and environmentally.
