While most stewardship events do not require an RSVP, please check the description to make sure that advanced registration is not required.
PP&R staff will be on site to greet you and will provide gloves, tools, training for the day's activity, and a snack to keep you going.

While groups are welcome to join many of regularly scheduled stewardship events, please contact the event coordinator listed in the description before arriving with a large group.
