We encourage everyone to bring their buckets and reusable gloves in order to minimize the usage of single-use materials like bags and plastic gloves.  Parking is free at all Watsonville inland sites and cleaning materials will be provided.  

Enjoy some FREE morning refreshments and join us as we celebrate our hard work with some PIZZA after the cleanup. Don’t forget to bring your reusable water bottle and tools and help us strive to make this a zero-waste event. 

It is HIGHLY recommended that all volunteers wear closed-toed shoes as well as wear sun protection, bring a filled water bottle, and layered clothing.
