We’ve collected over 160 bags full of trash, 15 tires, a pile of construction debris, and a sofa from Croydon Woods so far this year! It’s hard to believe there is still more to clean up, but there is…so join in the fun and help improve this lovely wooded habitat.

Help for the whole day, half or a couple hours. Lunch provided.
