About

We need your help to keep our parks and streams clean! Organizing and holding a cleanup event is easy and fun and is a great way to get outdoors and help your local environment. We will work with your existing group or help you recruit one and we'll work with you to find a conveniently located project site.

We'll need to know five things in order to get your cleanup organized:

1) The date you would like to do a cleanup
2) Where you would like to do the cleanup (a specific location is great but it's fine to have a general area or even no preference)
3) The estimated size of your group
4) How long you plan on working for
5) If you would like to have a private event or are looking for additional volunteers.

Once we have a plan your group will be provided with gloves and trash bags, a special volunteer permit letter, safety guidelines, and park staff & park police will be notified about the cleanup and haul away the trash afterwards.
