Following the completion of your volunteering, we will ask for you to submit a provided "Litter Counting Worksheet." This important document allows us to compile a detailed inventory of everything we find, it's proximity to the creek, and additional field notes of importance. This data is going to be compiled in reports, and then shared with the USFS and local non-profit to help us learn about which areas in Oak Creek Canyon, Wet Beaver Creek, and Verde River need the most help. This information will be offered in helping discuss enhanced parking & signage in Oak Creek Canyon, new receptacle locations in areas of need, and increased supervision of areas with the highest frequency of littering and land abuse.
