Event Information

Coastal Cleanup Volunteers give back to the community by helping us remove hundreds of pounds of trash from Pier 1 salt marshes and beaches. Scheduled times are according to low tides, from May - October.

All volunteers must fill out a waiver and bring it to their first volunteer activity in the park. Volunteers 18 years old or younger should submit their waiver signed by a parent or guardian before any activity begins; volunteers 16 years old or younger must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

Groups with 10 members or fewer are welcome to join in our 2-hour long Coastal Cleanup sessions. Space is limited. Please fill out a Coastal Cleanup Group Form to request a date.

New volunteers, please complete this form to RSVP.

Registered volunteers, please log-in to your volunteer profile to schedule yourself.
