Posted on Sep 9 2016 - 11:50am

Each year our Pack lends a helping hand to clean up our environment.  This is a great opportunity to do service to our community.  This Inner-Coastal Cleanup will take place throughout the region, but we have a way to contribute locally - back in our canyon.  Come anytime between 8:30 a.m.-noon for an hour or more.  Wear your class B pack t-shirt.  Bring water, hats, sunsreen, work gloves, and plastic grocery/trash bags.  You don't need to come for the entire event - just an hour.

Location: Live Oak Canyon at Trabuco Creek (if you are coming from El Toro Road, make a right at Cook's Corner and head toward RSM.  After O'Neill Park (and before you head up the hill to go to RSM) you will see the booth set up for the cleanup.  

Please sign in - we are hoping to have a Pack sign in on the table.  Also, RSVP on our Pack website - often they offer to give shirts to pre-registered helpers!
