Event guidelines/tips:
It is best to wear solid shoes/sun protective clothes/hat and sunscreen. Please bring a REFILLABLE/USABLE WATER BOTTLE and/or CUP for cold water refills & Starbucks coffee (to limit single-use litter that day). Great if you would like to bring gloves (can be from garden, kitchen, plastic, etc) because trash pickup can be messy and we'll also be digging around in the dirt!  We will have sunscreen, bug spray and gloves onsite too.

COMMUNITY SERVICE credits available to students volunteering. Kids under 15 MUST be supervised by an adu
lt unless prearranged /confirmed with the Friends directly - feel free to call or email us.
