Additional Info

Our focus is on cleaning up cigarette butt waste. Gloves, safety vests, receptacles will be provided. Volunteers will be asked to help tally the number of butts collected. Signed waivers will be required in order to participate. Participants under 19 will require a waiver signed by a parent or guardian and parental supervision in order to participate in the clean up. As a small token of appreciation our hardworking volunteers will be treated to a post clean up BBQ at Mossom Creek Hatchery. Hope you will be able to join us.
