What will we be doing?
The Tireless Project and Friends of the Riverfront will be spending the day in Tarentum for our Allegheny River Cleanup Series!
Volunteers will have two work options to choose from:
Riverfront Cleanup: Allegheny CleanWays' Riverfront Cleanup Program, the Tireless Project, will be working with volunteers from the land and water via our boat, the Rachel Carson. We will remove trash that has accumulated along the riverfront.
Neighborhood Litter Walk: Volunteers will also have the option to participate in a Neighborhood Litter walk with Friends of the Riverfront.
Neighborhood Litter Walks are low-intensity events, excellent for casual adventure with families. At each walk, volunteers follow a local guide for a local guide for collecting lightweight litter in public streets and pathways, followed by social at nearby restaurant or gathering place. We'll provide all the equipment, you provided the helping hand.
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, and refreshments.
