Join Parks staff in helping to keep Dorothea Dix Park clean and beautiful at this cleanup.
Duties: Volunteers will help remove litter from Dorothea Dix Park with trash bags and pickup sticks.
Impact: By removing litter, we can help provide a healthier environment for wildlife and citizens to enjoy.
Work Environment: All volunteer work will take place outside on uneven terrain.
Volunteer Requirements: Pre-registration is required. Volunteers must be at least 10 years old. Volunteers under 16 years of age must have a parent/guardian present - they must register as well. Everyone who volunteers must sign a release form. If anyone is under the age of 18, then a parent or guardian must sign their form as well.
Please be sure to sign each family member up separately. Each person needs to register to attend the event. If they are not registered they will not be counted and our numbers will not reflect correctly, which means we would have to turn people away due to COVID protocols.
