Project Description
Volunteers will be walking through Brooklyn Creek picking up trash. Feel free to bring waders or waterproof boots if you have them.
  • This site is not kid-friendly.
  • Be on the lookout for interesting finds at your site! You can enter them into our annual Trash 2 Treasure contest. Your site leader will have more details about how to enter.
  • Volunteers should bring a reusable water bottle to fill up at the kick-off event.
  • Volunteers should wear close-toed shoes or boots and long pants. Come ready to get dirty!

Registration Notes
