*NOTE EARLIER TIME*
Meet at the Gorge for an early cleanup before the Pride parade and festivities. Cleanup will run from 9-11am. We will be providing supplies, but if you could bring your own buckets or cloth reusable bags, and reusable gloves (non-plastic) that would be helpful. Snacks will be provided!
The Gorge is a very popular waterway in our city and is subject to an amazing amount of pollution. Come help show pollution we are bigger and better than it by coming to collect litter, styrofoam, plastics, and other nonsense left by us humans.
