Boats will ferry volunteers to the river banks and islands to pick up trash that has washed up on shore. Other volunteers, including youth groups, can pick up trash along the banks, trails and parking lots. Volunteers will receive a free boat ride, t-shirt, trash bags, gloves, and lunch. Life jackets will be provided. Children's life jackets are limited. If you plan on bringing a child, please bring a life jacket that fits them. Please bring weather and work appropriate clothes. Long pants are preferred. Wear sturdy shoes or boots. Bring sunscreen, bug spray, and a re-usable water bottle. Groups, individuals, and all ages & abilities are welcome. Come join in the fun!
