Walker Clean Ups

Walker has "adopted" our campus and roadway through the Keep Tampa Bay Beautiful program! This means we will be holding a minimum of 4 cleanups during the school year. KTTB will provide safety vests (for roadway only),gloves, bags, and will arrange for garbage pick-up. We will submit a project report detailing what/amount of items picked up.

The Mission of Keep Tampa Bay Beautiful is to provide volunteer and educational opportunities that promote a culture of environmental stewardship.

WHAT TO WEAR: Closed-toed shoes that can get wet, hat, garden gloves, sunglasses & sunscreen (additional gloves and trash bags will be provided)
WHAT TO BRING: Gardening/yard tools, refillable water bottle-and LOTS of ENERGY!! We need chain saws and hedge trimmers for our lakeside project - ADULTS ONLY.
