Join community groups to pick up trash around the park to help keep the Muddy River clean. Our teen Youth Leadership Program will also provide an activity on how rivers and watersheds work. Come work and learn with us!


ITEMS NEEDED

*Volunteers will be supplied trash bags, gloves, snack, pickup sticks, and signature 2019 Cleanup water bottle upon request.  Please wear closed toe shoes.
