The event is happening April 24 from 9 a.m. to noon. Volunteers can choose from any of 19 event sites across Colorado Springs, Manitou Springs, Falcon, and Monument.

Trash bags and safety vests will be provided. Volunteers should dress appropriately, bring sunscreen and gloves, and wear closed-toe shoes. Participants under 16 must be supervised.
