Come help clean up Collier Point in Providence, a hidden little park not far from the hurricane barrier. This is an after-work cleanup – don’t worry if you can’t get there exactly at 5!

Shoreline trash is ugly and dangerous to wildlife, and shoreline cleanups are an easy way for volunteers to make a difference. Save The Bay will provide the trash bags and disposable gloves. All volunteers should dress for the weather and wear clothes they don’t mind getting dirty. Closed-toed shoes are required. All volunteers must be able to do some light to moderate bending and lifting. Volunteers under 16 must participate with an adult. Volunteers must have their own transportation to the event. All volunteers are encouraged to bring their own reusable gloves, water bottle and snacks to the cleanup event.

Meet at Collier Point Park. 2 Henderson St, Providence, RI is an approximate GPS address. Henderson St is located off of Allens Ave, where Rt 95/195 crosses overhead.

Follow this link to our Volunteer Waiver Form: Volunteer Waiver Release Form 2018 Please complete this form and bring it with you THE DAY OF the event. We will have extra copies on hand if you are unable to print. IF UNDER 18 parent or guardian MUST sign waiver.

*Please note:  Be sure to access the Johnson & Wales University Harborside Campus through the main entrance on Harborside Blvd. Your GPS may suggest taking Ernest Street to JWU’s Shipyard Street entrance, but that route requires a key card for entry.  

From Route I-95 North or South, take Exit 18 (Thurbers Avenue). Head downhill on Thurbers Avenue to US Route 1A (Allens Avenue). Turn right onto Allens Ave. Continue southbound on Allens Ave. into Cranston, where Allens Ave. becomes Narragansett Blvd. Turn left onto Harborside Blvd. at the traffic light by the Shell gas station. Follow Harborside Blvd. through the Johnson & Wales Harborside Campus. At the end of Harborside Blvd., turn right onto Save The Bay Drive. Save The Bay Drive becomes a circular, one-way roadway as you approach the Bay Center. Parking is available in four guest lots after you pass the main building. Enter the building through the main entrance.
