Projects will include: picking up litter the flood brought in, spreading new mulch in the playground to replace what was washed out, kayaking/canoeing all waters in order to access the litter along the shorelines, picking up logs/sticks and putting them in piles, etc. You will find lots of interesting things! So take pictures while you are here!

Want to help, but maybe are not up for all the walking? We could use a few people at the central check-in location to help sort recyclables and non-recyclables!

What to bring: work gloves, sturdy shoes and a smiling face!

We will provide reusable trash bags, pitchforks, rakes, and shovels.
