WHAT: Come help clean up Oakland Beach in Warwick with Save The Bay! Shoreline litter is ugly and dangerous to wildlife, and you can help us make a difference. This is part of a weekly series of cleanups – come join us every Monday from 9 am to 11 am!

WHERE: Oakland Beach, 885 Oakland Beach Ave, Warwick, RI. We will gather at the gazebo.

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.

  • Volunteers must have their own transportation to the event.

*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.
