PLEASE SIGN UP FOR CLEANUP HERE

WHAT: Come help clean up beautiful Napatree Point! Shoreline litter is ugly and dangerous to wildlife, and you can help us make a difference! This cleanup is hosted by Save The Bay, Watch Hill Conservancy, and Long Trail Brewing Company.

WHERE: Meet at the Napatree Point parking lot, Fort Rd, Westerly. There is no precise address for the site but you can use 74 Bay St, Westerly, RI 02891 as an approximate address for GPS – that will get you to the entrance!

WHAT TO WEAR

  • Dress for the weather! Remember it is often cooler and windier at the shore.
  • Wear clothes you don’t mind getting dirty.
  • Closed-toed shoes are required.
  • Bring work gloves! We will have disposable gloves as well.

WHAT TO BRING

  • A bottle of water (we recommend reusable!) and any snacks you might want.
  • Our waiver, completed and signed: Volunteer Waiver Release Form. Completing this form in advance saves time during check in, but we will also have plenty of copies there if you have trouble printing. IF UNDER 18 parent or guardian MUST sign waiver.
  • If you have your own trash grabbers, bring them along!

WHO CAN JOIN

  • Anyone! Volunteers under 16 must participate with an adult, and adults must supervise their children during the cleanup.
  • All volunteers must be able to do some light to moderate bending and lifting.
  • Volunteers must have their own transportation to the event.

MORE INFO:

  • See our Safety Cleanup Tips, especially if you are bringing children.
  • Need documentation of your volunteer hours? Just ask your cleanup leader at the event. We will have service letters on hand to complete for you.

*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.
