1. Follow your local community pages, including your neighboring cities and coalitions. Any clean-up events are usually posted to social networking sites like Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Below are some we recommend in the High Desert community:

City of Hesperia

City of Victorville 

City of Adelanto

Town of Apple Valley

Phelan Pinon Hills Community Services District

High Desert Keepers

Don’t Trash Our Desert

2. RSVP if applicable and mark your calendar so you don’t forget! This will hold you accountable and make you more likely to follow through on your commitment. 

3. Show up on time and have fun! You can also invite friends and family to volunteer for extra help. The more the merrier!

4. Thank the organizer! Organizing a volunteer day takes hard work and passion, so make sure you thank the organization and don’t forget to ask about future events or meetings.
