Everyone should be on-site at the staging area, at the Fort McDowell Casino Parking lot, by 0930 hours so that we can have a briefing. We usually see 40-50 participants, but we’d like to see more if you’re able to join us. Transportation will be provided to a location on the SB side of SR-87 (Beeline Highway), where the cleanup will commence at 1000 hours.
