Community Clean Up Event in Seattle

Welcome to Green Water Lab's park clean-up event at Gas Works Park on May 19th! We are honored to spend the day with all you fellow volunteer stewards of our earth. 

Please note that the event will proceed rain or shine, so we encourage you to dress accordingly. We do, however, recommend arriving with long pants and close-toed shoes regardless of the weather. There will likely be sharp items around such as glass fragments.

We will provide all necessary supplies, including trash bags, rubber gloves, trash grabber tools, a jug to refill water bottles, hand sanitizer, and some snacks to keep you energized throughout the event. Please bring your own water bottle. If at any point you feel uncomfortable picking up an item, please notify one of the event leaders. 

To ensure efficiency and coverage, participants will be divided into groups. Some volunteers will focus on litter in the upper parking lot and tree areas, while others will concentrate on trash collection in the main park. Additionally, some volunteers will be tasked with spraying Algae Assassin on areas affected by algae growth around the playground and picnic areas, while others will be stationed at the waterfront, cleaning up garbage and organic waste.

At the end of the clean-up we will briefly meet back up at our meeting spot by the covered structures and playground for a few farewell words and see you off! We hope this event inspires all of us to continue to take action when and where we can and are so excited to see you all at our next event!

During the event, we will be capturing pictures and videos to document our collective efforts. Some of these pictures and videos may end up on our social media accounts. If you prefer not to be included in these visuals, please kindly inform us beforehand via email and we will be sure to respect that.

If you have any questions or concerns before or during the event, or have a preference for which group you'd like to join, please reach out to Hannah Johnson at

Please complete the volunteer form below so we can plan for your participation. Note: all minors must be accompanied by adults.

Thank you once again for your dedication to environmental stewardship. Together, we can make a meaningful difference in our community.
