What you need to know:

We provide all the equipment for this family-friendly activity. No need to RSVP, but we ask that you speak to our event coordinator before you pick up litter. Look out for our signs and the check-in table. With safety in mind, we do ask that all volunteers sign a waiver once per year. You may sign the waiver before hand online by clicking here. In New York State any volunteer under 18 must be accompanied by a guardian that is at least 18 years old.  

There will be prizes raffled off to volunteers at every cleanup event!

These events are 100% weather dependent
