PLEASE SIGN UP FOR CLEANUP HERE.
Come help clean up beautiful Colt State Park in Bristol! 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.

DIRECTIONS TO THE SITE: Colt State Park is a large park! Please follow these directions to find the meeting site.
From points north or south on ROUTE 114 / HOPE STREET in Bristol, turn west onto ASYLUM ROAD (there is a traffic light at this intersection, and two large bulls atop white marble “gates”).
Follow ASYLUM ROAD past the Quinta-Gamelin Community Center, the Bike Path, and when you reach a fork in the road, bear to the left to continue on ASYLUM toward Colt State Park (rather than bearing right towards the Town Beach & athletic fields).
Continue past an unmanned guard shack into Colt State Park, and follow the main road through the park. It will lead you past the Boat Ramp and along the waterfront. Continue straight ahead, with Narragansett Bay on your right. You will proceed straight, passing several turnoffs and parking areas. Once you pass a heavily concentrated picnic area in a grove of trees and a PUBLIC RESTROOM building, you will see a large parking lot directly ahead of you as you head uphill (“Surprise Hill”). Ample parking for cleanup volunteers is available in the Surprise Hill parking area.
