What to bring:
Please bring a pair of work gloves to protect your hands (if you do not have gloves, we will have some to loan out), a refillable water bottle or hydration pack (we will have water jugs to refill your water container) and snacks.
Other useful items: Trash grabbers, 5-gallon buckets.
Tonto Pass: You do NOT need a Tonto Pass to participate in the cleanup. The parking fee will be waived for this event.
SUP and kayak enthusiasts: This event is paddle friendly! After the general safety briefing please gather at the Natural Restorations Booth for the paddle safety briefing. This is particularly important as there will be SCUBA divers from Force Blue in parts of the river removing invasive apple snails as well as trash. If you would like to secure any paddleboard or kayak rentals for this event, please contact us!
