Event Description:

Help Parks staff in keeping Laurel Hills Park clean and beautiful at this litter cleanup. Volunteers will target hot spots around the park and dispose of trash in nearby dumpsters/bins.

Duties:

Volunteers will help remove litter from Laurel Hills Park with trash bags and pickup sticks. Cleanup supplies will be provided.

Impact:

Improperly discarded trash, and litter, is a serious environmental hazard. It pollutes the water we use and depend on, it has the potential to cause injury to wildlife, and it is simply an eyesore. By removing litter, we can help provide a healthier environment for wildlife and citizens to enjoy.

Work Environment:

Volunteers will be working outdoors on uneven terrain. There will be restrooms on site.

Volunteer Requirements:

Pre-registration is required. Volunteers must be at least 10 years old. Those under 16 years of age must be accompanied by a parent/guardian. Everyone who volunteers must sign a release form. Those under 18 years of age must have a parent/guardian sign their release form.

Other Instructions:

Volunteers should wear comfortable, weather-appropriate clothing that can get dirty and close-toed shoes such as sneakers or hiking boots. Please bring your own filled water bottle. Additional details about parking and trash disposal will be emailed to all registered volunteers.
