Park cleanups during Covid - NEW REQUIREMENTS

Location:

At a park near you!
Montgomery County, MD

Description

We need your help to keep our parks and streams clean! Due to COVID we have a few more requirements, but organizing and holding a cleanup event can still be fun and is a great way to get outdoors and help your local environment!

The Volunteer Service Office will work with you and your team to organize a safe cleanup event.

Here are current COVID requirements (these MAY change):
-ALL volunteers must fill out Montgomery Parks COVID-19 waivers prior to volunteering at your cleanup.
-Volunteers must bring and wear a mask, as it is mandatory to use when a minimum of 6-foot social distancing cannot be met.
-Your group size cannot exceed 25 volunteers, and needs at least one adult supervisor per 10 volunteers.
-Your volunteers must a pre-register (no drop-ins) with you to control the group size.
-You need a check-in list to keep track of those who actually show up to the cleanup.
-Volunteer Contact information must be collected during volunteer registration for contact tracing purposes
-CDC guidelines should be shared prior and posted at your cleanup.
-Volunteers are required to keep AT LEAST 6 feet between them and anyone else outside of their household.
-Sanitizer gel provided by you if hand washing is not available.
-Shared items must be sanitized between uses.
-If bathrooms are available at the site, volunteers use them at their own risk.
-Volunteers under 14 must be accompanied by an adult

If you and your group can meet these requirements, and are ready to set up a project, we will need to know five things in order to get your cleanup organized:

1) The date you would like to do a cleanup
2) Where you would like to do the cleanup (a specific location is great but it's fine to have a general area or even no preference)
3) The estimated size and ages of your group
4) How long you plan on working for
5) If you would like to have a private event or are looking for additional volunteers.
