National Get Outdoors Day Stewardship Work Day @ Nelson's Point, 8:00 am - 12:00 pm
All volunteers meet at Nelson's Point at 8:00.
It has been a few years since Peninsula was able to coordinate a large-scale volunteer event, so we are thrilled to be organizing the Leave No Trace Spotlight Stewardship Work Day. We’re calling on all interested individuals to join us. By blazing a new trail and helping to clean up the park we will be making a positive difference in the community and helping to improve our natural environment, and access to new areas at the same time. Don't worry if you've never done anything like this before because no experience is necessary. All necessary tools and equipment will be provided, so all you need to bring is your enthusiasm, some comfortable clothes, and a reusable water bottle.
