You'll need to be registered in our volunteer database as a cleanup leader. Please click on the Apply button and fill out the application; be sure to check the Group/Organization Leader box.

Once you're registered our Stream & Park Cleanup Coordinator will get in touch with you shortly.

We'll 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 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.

Once we have a plan your group will be provided with gloves and trash bags, a special volunteer permit letter, safety guidelines, and park staff & park police will be notified about the cleanup and haul away the trash afterwards.

Contact us if you have any questions.
