Clean the Bay Day - June annually - Shenandoah Green and other area organizations helped establish the first Clean the Bay Day in Staunton. By providing a data collection sheet for clean-ups in our area, we have begun to gain an understanding of the quantity and types of litter that are clogging our waterways and polluting our landscape.
