Clean Ups and Work Parties  

Once you have adopted a spot, participated in a quick training, and received supplies, then clean up projects can begin.   Volunteers can set their own schedules for cleaning up, it can be as casual as a weekly stroll through the park.   All collected litter can be put in the trash cans onsite or in a designated area.   There is a short data collection for the work but otherwise, it is that simple to make a difference. The work is focused on litter clean up however depending on the volunteer light landscaping or restoration is an option.
