The restoration event I attended was well organized. Volunteer leads were knowledgeable, friendly, and enthusiastic. We watered and pulled non-native plants. Gloves, watering cans, and pop up trash cans were provided. One note: if you are particular about your gloves, you may wish to bring your own. Not sure how often they are washed. We weren’t particular, but just know they don’t use disposable gloves (environmentally friendly not to, by the way). The bathroom facilities are close by in the park, which were surprisingly very clean! A good experience for people of all ages, but volunteers should be able to bend and kneel, as you will be doing quite a bit of that. Your shoes will get dirty, as you will be walking in sand, dirt, and moist muddy areas. The day we went there were lots of teenagers from an environmental class and a few family groups. Bring a good attitude and be prepared, you might be asked to pose for a group picture! A great way to spend a Saturday morning!
