Lawrenceville Three Rivers Heritage Trail Parking Lawrenceville Trail
Pittsburgh, PA 15201
Join us for a riverfront cleanup on the Allegheny River! We are partnering with Friends of the Riverfront and Gay for Good Pittsburgh! Stay tuned because we have a few fun things up our sleeve in the works for this event!
What will we be doing?
Volunteers will meet at the Lawrenceville Three Rivers Heritage Trail Parking where we will go over safety, our work plan for the day, and then we will be off to collect trash from land and water! We will use our pontoon boat, Rachel Carson, to shuttle volunteers up and down the banks. Volunteers will also be working along the trail and surrounding area with Friends of the Riverfront to remove trash and invasive plants.
What do I wear?
Clothes: Please wear clothes that you are comfortable with potentially getting muddy/wet. Volunteers are required to wear long pants. We also recommend bringing long-sleeve shirt to avoid being scratched or coming in contact with poison ivy and sun. It is also suggested to bring a change of clothes in case you have a bit too much fun pulling a muddy tire.
Footwear: Closed-toe shoes are required. We recommend rubber boots or waterproof boots.
What do I bring?
Please be sure to bring your reusable water bottle!
All volunteers will be provided with work gloves, life jackets, safety glasses, and tools. We will also have all necessary safety equipment available such as first aid, sunscreen, bug spray, canned water, and light snacks.
Please send any questions or comments to [email protected]! See you on the water!
