RiverSweep HQ is at Riverside Middle School, 13 Fairground Road, Springfield VT. Trash bags and work-gloves are provided unless you choose to BYO. Come to the HQ as early as 8 AM, pick your cleaup site, and head out with a buddy. Return by 11AM to help tally and photograph your trash, wash hands, pick up your free commemorative “thank you” tee shirt, and enjoy a free simple lunch (usually grilled hot dogs).

Bring a water bottle, sun protection, and insect repellent; and mind the banks for poison ivy, check for ticks, all the usual safety precautions.

Volunteers from area schools target several upstream sites in the weeks prior to the RiverSweep; we clean several miles of river bank and engage roughly 200 volunteers over the course of the summer and fall.
