Volunteer to cleanup for Earth Week 2016

Clearwater will continue celebrating Earth Week 2016 by spending our fourth cleanup day in Poughkeepsie, NY working to clean up Dongan Place.  Volunteers will meet at the park to start and work around the area to clear any litter that may possibly enter the waterways of the Fallkill.  We will need volunteers to help us prior to the event to spread the word as well as throughout the day in various ways.

On the day of the event volunteers will be needed to sign people in, pick litter, sort trash and recyclables and record all collection data.  Volunteers will be required to arrive at least 15 minutes prior to the start of the event for assignments and to complete waivers.  

Please be sure to wear sturdy shoes, layers of clothing that you are willing to get dirty, sunscreen, water and a hat.  We will not provide refreshments so feel free to bring a light snack if you think you will need one.

Please click below to register as a volunteer and if you would like to help spread the word and put flyers up in your area prior to the event please e-mail the event contact and Clearwater's Volunteer Coordinator, Shameika Hanson to find out how.  

We look forward to seeing you there and helping us to continue to deliver for the river!
