A beautiful day in the neighborhood sometimes requires a little help from our neighbors. Come Downtown to help beautify the sidewalks and public areas with some tidying up. We'll be on litter patrol, cleaning benches, removing graffiti, and doing some light gardening. This is a great way to show your support for our locally-owned small businesses of Downtown and demonstrate your community pride.
Come prepared for working in any weather by wearing comfortable clothes that you don't mind getting dirty and closed-toed shoes. Please bring a refillable water bottle and work gloves if you have them.
Please contact EJ at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in bringing a larger group to participate.
We are excited to still be able to provide a good volunteer opportunity to you, even though it won't be the "traditional" Rogue River Cleanup. The river still needs YOU!
DATES: June 20th and 21st (Saturday & Sunday).
OPTIONS: Cleanup up trash on North and South jetties (around the mouth of the Rogue RIver), Mill Bar & Huntley (south side of river), and Canfield Bar (north side of the river). OR if you have a special place in mind, feel free to choose your own spot! I'm really just thinking about the Rogue River, and all its tributaries, in general. If you know of "hot spots" on the river, please let me know. I have attached the poster, which you will start to see around town, and a map for clean up locations.
You will NEED to:
Sign a volunteer waiver form
Pick a day to participate, and let me know via email at email@example.com (June 20 or June 21)
Pick up supplies at designated time (9:30-10:30am)
Return some garbage and receive a prize!!
