Schedule:

9:00am - 9:15am: Kick-off & morning brief

9:15am - 11:30am - Service the river (Around 1.5 - 2 miles)

11:30am - 11:45am - Collect trash & sort

11:45am - 12:00pm - Education brief & closing remarks

This will be an adventurous clean-up event, targeting a location that is not as family-friendly as other clean-ups. Some locations have challenging access and long hauls, sometimes requiring that volunteers walk through dense vegetation, climb down steep embankments, or haul trash up to ¾ mile.

The majority of the trash we clean up has been left behind by individuals experiencing homelessness.

Volunteers can expect a challenging morning of removing items such as mattresses, clothing, shopping carts, and often unsavory items such as needles.
