Every year, volunteers pitch in to clean up the water and shoreline along the Gorge. This improves the habitat for local wildlife and the look of the area for local residents and community members. We invite everyone to participate in this important event and make a difference in our local environment!

Volunteers will clean the shoreline along the Gorge Waterway and a volunteer dive team will retrieve debris from the ocean floor. We have a limited supply of boots and gloves so please bring your own if you are able.  This event runs rain or shine so please dress for the weather.
