Beltline Clean-up Day

The Virginia Museum of Transportation and Roanoke Southern, LLC invites you to participate in the Beltline Clean-up Day.  Join us on March 28, 2021, 1pm to 5 pm, and Wasena Park for a fun day of removing trash and clearing the train tracks of vegetation on the Beltline Train Track. We will be working on the trackage heading west from Wasena Park.  For more information or to signup please contact Virginia Museum of Transportation at VMT.org.  Online Registration is required before 3/25/2021 and is the Volunteer Release of Liability and Assumption of Risk Agreement (see below). Please complete and email to events@vmt.org by 3/25/2021.

Who Can Help? 

Anyone and everyone. Most volunteers should expect to be able to walk along train track pick up litter, and clean vegetation using non-power tools (hand clippers, loppers, rakes).
