REI and United by Blue volunteers help remove trash from the uplands and marsh areas of the Bay and do some native plant restoration. Everyone should wear old clothes and close-toed shoes because you will get dirty. Feel free to bring your own gloves and/or bucket if you have them to help pick up trash. It also helps for the land-based cleanup if you have tall/rubber boots or water shoes so you can get into the mud and reach those hard to get pieces that may be not as accessible when wearing regular sneakers.
