River Rescue

Weekday River Cleanup Volunteer Team



The River Rescuers are a fun group of dedicated volunteers! This group of repeat volunteers currently meet on Wednesday and Saturday mornings. They support the Clean and Green Team by doing pre-event and post-event site visits, removing trash sites that are not suited for a large community clean-up or too difficult to reach. They are a small but mighty team!

If you have spare time on Wednesdays or Saturdays, are interested in meeting a great group of people, and want to make a difference for the River, then this may be the opportunity for you! Each week, volunteers meet in a different location to remove targeted trash issues. Come prepared to get your hands dirty and work hard, but plenty of laughs along the way with this great team! The team meets at different locations each week, from 9-noon on Wednesdays.

 

Volunteers must be 18 and up, and this program usually does not qualify for volunteer hour verification. Volunteers often work in environments impacted by homeless encampments, removing trash left behind when encampments are abandoned. Because of the current Hepatitis A outbreak in our region, we strongly encourage that volunteers have current vaccination for Hep A to reduce risk.
