All hands on deck! Come join the North Carolina Wildlife Federation and Wake County Big Sweep in removing litter from Rocky Branch near Dix Park in downtown Raleigh. Help remove litter that directly pollutes the Walnut Creek watershed.

Volunteers will park at the large parking lot in front of the Chapel (1030 Richardson Dr. Raleigh, NC 27603) and meet at the Greenway Trail Head at Dorothea Dix Park on Tate Dr. at Boylan Avenue. Additional parking is at the top of the hill on either side of the old hospital building. 

Please come appropriately dressed for the weather in clothing that can get wet, torn, or messy with long pants and closed-toed shoes. Volunteers will be divided into teams that will tackle various zones including along greenways, roadsides, fields, and into the creek. Please bring water bottles. All other supplies will be provided. This site has some steep banks, bees/yellow jackets, and possible poison ivy.
