What We’ll be Doing:

The primary focus of this project will be trash pickup and graffiti removal.

What to Bring:

Because this is a graffiti project, wear clothing you don’t mind getting dirty in.  We recommend long pants and log sleeves, as some volunteers have reported minor skin irritation due to prolonged skin contact with the graffiti removal product we will be using.

  • Food and water for the day
  • Good sturdy boots
  • Long pants, long sleeve shirt
  • Working gloves (if you have them)
