Project Description
Volunteers will be picking up trash along trails off of Old Will Hunter Road, near the Middle Oconee River. This site has very steep slopes.
  • This site is not kid-friendly.
  • There are primarily dry clean-up options.
  • Volunteers should bring a filled reusable water bottle with them to their site.
  • Volunteers should wear close-toed shoes or boots and long pants.
  • Volunteers are encouraged to bring bug spray and/or sunscreen...basically be ready to be outdoors!
  • Come ready to get dirty!
COVID-19 Required Protocol:
  • All volunteers should take their temperature prior to showing up to volunteer.
    • If your temperature is over 100.4 on the morning of the event, please DO NOT show up to volunteer.
  • Masks are required for ALL Volunteers at all times during the cleanup.
  • Volunteers will be asked to maintain a distance of at least 6 feet from one another.
  • Volunteers will be asked to NOT share tools - all tools will be sanitized prior to use.
    • Please feel free to bring your own tools if you have them (loppers, hand pruners, gloves, litter grabber).
    • Volunteers will be asked to assist with sanitizing tools following the cleanup.
  • If you believe that you or someone in your household has been exposed to COVID-19, please DO NOT show up to volunteer.
