Your morning will start out with a welcome from your site captain, signing of waivers (required), and T-shirt distribution. This will be followed by an overview of the day’s activities, safety talk, and distribution of supplies to volunteers. Volunteers will work along the river banks and help to remove litter, sort out recyclables and remove invasive species.
