DESCRIPTION

THE GREAT LA RIVER CLEANUP RETURNS JUNE & JULY 2021

CleanUp is back and better than ever! This year, volunteers can join FoLAR and our partners for a series of small, in-person cleanups at select locations in June and July, or conduct their own DIY, self-guided cleanup in their neighborhood. 


ITEMS NEEDED

Every registrant will receive a CleanUp Starter Kit, available at a local REI or sent in the mail. Included in your CleanUp Starter Kit is:

  • FoLAR x REI Neck Gaiter
  • Two trash bags
  • Pair of plant-based disposable gloves
  • LA River Maps trio
  • Limited edition LA River postcard
For everyone’s safety, FoLAR will observe the following COVID-19 safety protocols:
  • Masks and social distancing will be required at all CleanUp sites.
  • Attendance at CleanUp Sites will be limited to 50 people per shift.
  • All registered volunteers will receive a CleanUp Starter Kit (available at a local REI or sent by mail) with the essentials to participate: two trash bags and a pair of plant-based disposable gloves.
  • Volunteers are also encouraged to utilize supplies they may have available in their homes, such as reusable buckets, old grocery bags, gardening gloves, etc.
  • Water stations and porta-potties WILL NOT be provided at CleanUp sites. The only on-site infrastructure will be dumpsters for trash and hand sanitizing stations.
  • We adhere to County and State public health guidelines and will adjust our events accordingly.
