Spring Cleanup Events

There are many opportunities coming up for getting outside and cleaning up our natural places. This being the Ocean State there is a focus on our rivers and the shoreline. Removing plastics before they wash into the bay and degrade into toxin-bearing microplastics will benefit both humans and wildlife. Join individually or form a team. There is a great sense of satisfaction when you see what you have accomplished; it just looks so much better. Business owners still have time to organize and sponsor a team.

The Save the Bay Cleanup Days will have you down by the water — plan your footwear accordingly. Dates coming up in Providence:

Collier Park: April 11, June 7

Fields Point: April 20, May 8, June 18 (directions)

India Point Park: April 27

There are more dates later in the summer and around the state. Go here for Save the Bay calendar.

We will be putting on waders and getting in boats for an extensive in-water cleanup, painting guard rails and benches, and planting trees.

Waders! These people are serious. Go here for Woonasquatucket River Earth month cleanup events.
