Keep trash out of the Fall Kill Creek

April 21, 2016: 2:30PM to 5:30PM
Wheaton Park, Poughkeepsie map
To Attend:

Clearwater will celebrate Earth Week by cleaning up Dongan Park in Poughkeepsie. 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.

If you have any questions please contact Clearwater’s Volunteer Coordinator Shameika at [email protected]
