We are reaching out to provide more details about the event. Beginning at 7:45am on Saturday, Friends of SAAACAM volunteers will act as guides to direct arriving volunteers to parking, registration, and work areas.


Off-duty police officers will be present to monitor and control pedestrian and vehicle traffic. First aid volunteers will be present in case of emergency.

We ask that all volunteers review and sign the attached Release and Waiver of Liability. All volunteers under the age of 18 will need a signature from a parent or guardian.

Please come dressed appropriately and ready to work. We recommend the following:

  • Long sleeve shirt and pants
  • Hiking boots or sneakers for rugged, muddy terrain
  • Gloves, protective eyewear and mask
  • Bug repellent


While we will have tools and equipment available, please feel free to bring your own gear:

  • hand loppers
  • power saws
  • hand saws
  • wheel barrows
  • lawn chairs


District 10 City Councilman Perry’s office is generously providing food and water. Volunteers will receive a ticket upon check-in at the registration table, which will be redeemed for lunch.

Upon completion of work shifts, volunteers will sign out at the registration table and receive gift caps.

Photographers and drone operators will be present throughout the event, as well as reporters from local media outlets. See attached Notice of Filming and Photography for more information.

Please spread the word to more folks who might be interested in helping out! We will send additional reminders as the event gets closer.

Thanks again for supporting SAAACAM!
