GROUPS

SCHEDULED CREEK/RIVER CLEANUPS

Contact us at 352-222-6727 or via email at: cleanup@currentproblems.org to set up a group cleanup- we are out in Gainesville creeks every weekend and on the Santa Fe River twice a month! Weekday & Weekend scheduling available.

STORM DRAIN MARKING

Another great way to volunteer for creek restoration around town is storm drain marking! Storm drain marking is done around the City of Gainesville and is great for groups and kids groups. Weekday & Weekend scheduling available.

SANTA FE RIVER CLEANUPS (GROUP OR INDIVIDUAL)

We partner with Canoe Outpost High Springs to offer free kayak rentals out of High Springs, FL for cleanups on the Santa Fe River (between 441 and State Road 47 bridges). Reservations need to be made at least a week in advance.​ 

INDIVIDUALS

CLEANUP KIT DROP-OFF

For cleanup kit drop-off, volunteers can either pick up their own cleanup kit for a personal cleanup or they can help us deliver cleanup kits to other volunteers!

 

Cleanup kits include: a bucket, gloves, mesh bag, grabbers (optional), a roll of trashbags, a sticker, and a time/ trash log. Volunteers have the option to dispose of trash on their own or we can pick up, sort, and recycle for you. 

 

Send us updates on trash collected and we will happily sign off on volunteer hours!
