WHOSE HELP IS REQUIRED

This is an all-ages activity, except for the cleanup at Jamaica Pond, which is open only to people 18 years of age or older unless accompanied by a guardian.

HOW IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE

Trash is dangerous for the animals that live in the park and the Muddy River...and it looks ugly. With your help, we'll remove the trash, protecting the animals and the river, and make things look better too!

DESCRIPTION

Join community groups to pick up trash around the park to help keep the Muddy River clean. Following our Covid-19 Event Protocols, each cleanup event will be capped at 25 participants and all volunteers will be required to wear a face covering and practice social distancing during the event.


ITEMS NEEDED

*Volunteers will be supplied trash bags, gloves, snack, and trash grabbers (depending on site and availability). All tools that have to be returned will be sanitized before and after the event. Please wear closed toe shoes.


SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS

Optional: Suggested Donation of $5 for Non-Profit, Family or Individual Volunteers.
