About the event
We will meet at 10 AM at the Scammell Bridge Parking lot (eastbound on Rte. 4/Boston Harbor Rd.) in Durham to discuss the clean up, get organized and oriented, and start cleaning! Should take 1-2 hours. Any time you can donate is greatly appreciated. And you will feel great knowing we helped make a small part of the world cleaner and healthier.
All you need to bring is a pair of reusable gloves, water shoes/boots or any footwear you can get muddy and a phone with the Marine Debris Tracker app already downloaded to track the collected trash (this can be shared between volunteers when necessary). Optional supplies: sunscreen, water/snacks, clothing options, change of footwear).
