Remember, we hold the event rain or shine! Dress for the weather and be
prepared to get dirty. Sturdy shoes and long pants are essential. A portable restroom
will be available near the registration area.
Ensuring the safety of our volunteers is our highest priority. It is important volunteers
are always mindful of their step, especially when carrying tools. If there is rain the day
of the event, the ground may be slippery and muddy.
TICKS AND POISON IVY:
Great River Greening staff and volunteers will be on hand to ensure volunteers are
kept away from poison ivy. None the less, volunteers should take a long shower upon
the return to scrub and wash any areas of their skin that may be exposed. There is a
possibility of ticks at any Greening site. Upon returning home, volunteers should do a
thorough tick check.
If you have your own pair of gardening gloves or work gloves, please bring them.
This will ensure Great River Greening has enough gloves on hand for all event
To reduce trash and use of plastic cups, we encourage you to bring a water bottle to
the event. We will have plenty of water stations throughout the site for you to fill up
your bottle. If you do not have access to a water bottle, we will have cups available.
