Up To Earth BIG Cleanup
Joyce Island 4.0
Last year we hosted two large cleanups here that were officially sponsored by Living Lands & Waters. We pulled out about 20 bags of trash total and over 500 pounds of scrap metal, with 17 volunteers total putting in a combined 22 hours of volunteering down on Joyce Island. This year we will be doing the same thing again (hopefully even bigger! I’m shooting for 30-40 volunteers!). That means that we’ll have volunteer shirts to give out (first come, first serve)! Up To Earth will also have some fun prizes that volunteers can win.
This entire “island” is covered with trash. Some of it is dangerous so PLEASE BE CAREFUL. You will need to sign a waiver to participate in this event, as it is an officially sponsored Living Lands & Waters event hosted by Up To Earth.
Bring a reusable water bottle to the event, we have water coolers! We will provide the bug repellent as well!
Please come show your support for the Earth and our growing movement of environmentally conscious individuals striving and acting to make real change for our communities.
We will have enough gloves for anybody who shows up to help.
Any bit of support you offer, (volunteering, donation, or advertisement) goes towards the removal of plastic, metal, and chemical waste from the local area, and by extension, a safer, cleaner future for every living thing here.
