Join a Cleanup

MITA’s cleanups are full-day events where experienced volunteer skippers take crews to targeted islands to clean shorelines. They’re great introductions to volunteering with MITA, and chances to explore the islands while keeping them clean for all. However, note that conditions can be challenging. Volunteers should be physically fit and comfortable climbing in and out of small skiffs and scrambling over slick, rocky shorelines. If you have questions about what is involved, contact

Cleanups are over for the 2019 season. Thanks to all the volunteers who helped us care for the Trail! Please check back with us in April for 2020 Spring Cleanup dates.
