Start a new tradition and think differently about the day after Thanksgiving! Join us for the 2nd Annual Green Friday Lower Salt River Cleanup on Friday, November 23rd from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m.
Sign-in: 7:30-8:00 a.m. | Safety Briefing: 8 a.m. | Cleanup starts: after safety briefing
What to bring: please bring a pair of work gloves to protect your hands. You are welcome to trash grabbers and buckets if you have them. If you don’t have gloves, we will have some that you can borrow. We will provide trash bags.
What to wear: Check the forecast & dress accordingly. Please wear clothing and shoes that can get dirty, possibly muddy. Wear long pants, a long sleeve shirt, thick-sole & closed toe sturdy shoes, a hat, sunglasses, and sunscreen.
Tonto Recreation Pass: You do NOT need one to participate in the event!
Water: Please help us reduce our use of single-use plastics and bring a refillable water bottle or hydration backpack. We will have water coolers full of water for you to refill your bottles and hydration backpacks. We can increase our impact by making a conscious effort not to use single-use plastic water bottles!
Snacks: We will have snacks for volunteers. If you have any dietary restrictions, you may want to bring your own snack.
Bathrooms: There are vault toilets open to the public.
Youth Volunteers: This is a great opportunity for youth! Anyone under 18 years old must be accompanied & supervised by an adult or group leader. Clubs and Groups welcome! We can accommodate large and small groups. Contact Nicole at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are a group leader and need our liability waiver to get parent permission ahead of time.
Directions: We will likely stage at Pebble Beach Recreation Area, but we want to ensure we can make the biggest impact possible on the river and will determine the exact location we are meeting as we get closer to November 23 rd. We will provide updated directions and parking information to everyone registered as well as on our website and social media pages.
