About this event

Where: Visitor Centre Parking lot at Northfield and Parkway

Meet time: 9:15 - Team Captains check in at the Rotary tent with signed team Waivers. Individuals not already part of a team check in onsite, sign the Waiver and then will be added to an existing team or be assigned a pickup location.

What is provided: Pickup location maps. Large green garbage bags, garbage 'picker-uppers', blue latex gloves, and pick up of garbage at the end by the City at the Visitor Centre.

What to bring: A truck if you have one(all 'Teams' will have a participant with a truck), heavy gloves, a few medium-sized bags which are easier to carry around than the big black ones, a 5-gallon pail (easiest of all to carry) is helpful as well.

Last year, some people brought wheelbarrows or buckets, which ended up being very handy for hauling stuff out of wooded areas.

Car pooling is recommended due to limited parking at the Park.
