Sites include on-foot and boating locations in the three towns. Volunteers should only be using small boats such as kayaks, canoes, and paddle boats, due to limited space.

 

Volunteers do not require a boat, but are encouraged to bring life jackets if available. Trash bags and gloves will be provided to all volunteers, and a limited amount of t-shirts for volunteers will be available!
