VIRTUAL: Team Up to Clean Up Challenge

Save to Favorites

The San Diego River Park Foundation



This January, as we embark on a new year, join The San Diego River Park Foundation in making a resolution to safely get outside while making a difference for the San Diego River!

For now, their group clean-up gatherings are paused, so your help is more important than ever! Every year, tens of thousands of pounds of trash wash into the riverbed from neighborhoods and canyons in our community. So help us out (and get some exercise at the same time) by hitting the sidewalk, trail, or walkway with a trash bag! This project will help them strive towards a trash-free San Diego River.

Opportunity Requirements & Important Notes

Signing up: SDRPF will not be verifying volunteer hours for this project. All information about how to participate can be found at: https://sandiegoriver.org/

Bring: You'll need clean-up and safety supplies such as protective gloves, face covering, trash bag(s) or 5-gallon bucket, and trash-pickers (tongs work great too!). Like any hike or long walk, it is also recommended to bring sunblock, a first aid kit, insect repellent, drinking water, hat, good shoes, hand sanitizer, and a camera!
