Sign up For Cleanup Here!
NOTE: This cleanup is a local community-building event, and we want to make sure it has plenty of space for neighbors and individuals! Therefore we have closed the “team signup” option for this cleanup. If you have a small, local team and would like to sign up, please email July Lewis at firstname.lastname@example.org.
WHAT: Come help clean up the public access at Public St & Allens Ave in Providence! This cleanup is hosted by Save The Bay and Washington Park Neighborhood Association. Shoreline trash is ugly and dangerous to wildlife, and shoreline cleanups are an easy way for volunteers to make a difference. NOTE: This cleanup is restricted to ages 12+.
WHERE: 80 Public St, Providence, RI 02903. Please carpool if possible, there is street parking only.
