Volunteers should wear closed toe shoes and expect to get wet and dirty. Long pants are recommended. Please bring water to drink and wear sunscreen.

Volunteers will assist in completing a field data assessment of the stream along with signing an adopt-a-stream agreement, reporting our findings and participation to the City of Raleigh.
