Anyone can participate. No experience is necessary. Bring work gloves, plenty of water and a lunch you can eat on the trails. We provide the trash bags and refreshments.

An additional part of this event with be a Leave No Trace Awareness Workshop. Participants will have the opportunity to actively learn about and demonstrate the 7 Leave No Trace Principles:

  • Plan Ahead and Prepare

  • Leave What You Find
