VOLUNTEER EVENT (WEEKDAY EVENT)
What: Trash removal
Where: Cypress Creek South Natural Area - 9424 W. Indiantown Rd. - Jupiter
Site Information: http://discover.pbcgov.org/erm/NaturalAreas/cypress-creek.aspx
When: Wednesday, April 14, 2021
Time: 8:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.
Directions: From I-95 exit at Indiantown Rd. (State Rd. 706) and head west for roughly 2 miles – the parking area is on the left, just west of Riverbend Park. Look for a white County truck to find designated meeting area.
Additional Information: Volunteers should wear long pants, t-shirts, boots or sneakers. We may be working in areas that have standing water – so volunteers should wear clothing they don’t mind getting wet or muddy. Poison ivy is found at this natural area. Restroom facilities are not available at the natural area. The Department will supply tools, gloves, and refreshments. Event participation is limited to the first 12 volunteers who register.
Register: The volunteer projects are designed for volunteers ages 16 and older. Volunteers 15 and under must be accompanied by parent or guardian. Volunteers can register for an ERM event by calling 561-233-2426 or emailing email@example.com. Thanks for helping the Department keep Palm Beach County clean and green.
Important Reminder: We are doing things a bit different because of Covid 19. Please read the following bulleted items:
- Group Size – We are limited to 15 people per cleanup. This number includes any staff helping with the event. So depending on the event the number of volunteers allowed to register may be from 12 to 14 people. Please register early if you want to help – and if you have to cancel, please let me know as soon as possible so your spot can be given to another volunteer.
- Safety Equipment – Please bring a mask with you. This does not mean you have to wear it during the entire event. Volunteers will need to wear a mask when 6 feet of distance can’t be maintained (for example, when volunteers are transported around the site).
- Gloves and Water Bottles – Please bring your own gloves and a water bottle. I will have gloves and cups with me in case people forget – but having your own equipment reduces physical interaction with staff and other volunteers.
