Groups and individuals can
participate in 2 ways.
Groups can find a local cleanup site that is accepting “walk up”
volunteers on our website in September. It is as easy as finding a pin on a map!

touch to help, get you cleanup supplies, tee-shirts, etc. You can register at
the beginning of the school year as well but will not be eligible for supplies
and tee-shirts at that time. You can choose whether or not you would like for
your group to be “public” (others can join you) or “private” (only your
organization or group members will be part of your team).

Remember, if you have a number of
kids wanting t-shirts, register your group online now.
Let me know if you have any other
friends who would like to form a school group. Thanks.
