What to Bring:
All volunteers must wear a MASK! Please also come wearing comfortable closed-toed shoes and your own pair of work gloves if you have them.

COVID Safety: Wear a face covering. Observe social distancing throughout the cleanup. Children are welcome but must be accompanied by an attentive adult.

Restrooms: Public restrooms at the park may be closed. There are some nearby shops and grocery stores on NW 23rd that may have an open restroom. Please plan accordingly.
